Everyone knows the great feeling you get from delivering a top-notch press release, campaign or publication.  But beyond receiving a congratulatory box of doughnuts or a pat on the back from your boss, how do you evaluate the success your work?  It’s no longer as simple as counting how many print newspapers have featured your press release or how many downloads your report got - the shifting digital landscape and changing priorities of research institutions mean that evaluation can be a complex and sometimes painful business.
