Managing Your Scholarly Identity: Reputation and Impact See CONDUIT for workshop announcements and current calendar.

A professional online presence is one of the best tools a researcher and scholar can employ to increase the visibility of their publications and research output, to increase institutional recognition, to find potential collaborators, future co-authors, and readers. It is increasingly important to reach the public and policy makers and to keep discipline experts and their scholarship visible in Google search results. Even though It can be overwhelming as we attempt to stay abreast of every new development and option discovered or sold to us; curating your online identity is possible at any comfort level. Learn about tools and techniques to retain more control over your reputation and ensure that search results reflect how you want to be seen. 

This workshop will cover strategies, services, and tools for curating your online profile and making your digital footprint work for you. Learn how scholars and researchers at all stages in their careers and comfort level can increase their visibility, impact, and collaborative opportunities. Take-away tools to make, track, and communicate broader impacts.

Using Bibliometrics and Altmetrics to Communicate Your Scholarly and Research Impact

Links to the slides (below) and guideSee CONDUIT for workshop announcements and current calendar.

Scholars and researchers, academic departments, and universities increasingly are asked to disclose the impact of their research to external funders, for promotion and tenure review, and to measure against their peers. While the practice of measuring research impact isn’t new, the availability of new tools and methods of communication has proliferated in recent years. In this workshop, you will learn about these available metrics tools, both “traditional” (like Web of Science) and “alternative” (like Altmetric), how to incorporate these into telling the story of your research impact, and learn some of the ways you can increase your visibility as a scholar. We’ll cover a variety of metrics methods and tools that allow for the communication of impact across the disciplines.
