On 28th November 2016, twelve University of Nairobi Librarians from various units and campuses were trained as trainers of the InCites system. InCites is an online platform  powered by Thomson Reuters and has the capability of giving elaborate visual graphics of the University’s research output, research usage and collaborations.  It is a tool that will help the University to track its researchers’ citations. It can also track details of institutional collaborators and partners.   Incites will help the University to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in terms of research and collaborations as well as benchmark with other research institutions around the globe

The University has subscribed to InCite and has mandated the library to train researches on how to use the software and to help them understand where to publish their research papers for them to make an impact.
