Abstract

The National Science Foundation requires applicants to describe the “Broader Impacts” of their work, but what truly makes a Broader Impacts activity (BIA) “broad” and “impactful”? I suggest that a “Broader Impacts Impact Factor” could define BIAs’ potential for "impact" and aid comparison of proposed activities during peer review.
