Impact metrics play a key role in evidencing the value of science gateways, and a range of studies are now emerging that demonstrate the significance of science gateways in different ways. This paper examines some of the research approaches that are being utilized in this field, and discusses the value of different approaches in demonstrating different types of outcomes. The paper concludes by examining the Australian context, and reflects on how this is affecting the analytical approaches being employed to measure the impact of Australian-based science gateways.
