Get Recognized: Three Platforms to Promote Your Publications         (Michaela Willi Hooper)

Tuesday, Dec. 13, 1:00 - 2:00 p.m., Autzen Classroom

  • Have you published a book or article? Are you looking for a job, applying for a grant, or going up for tenure or promotion?  If so, this workshop is for you.  First, you will claim your Google Scholar profile and identify your publications.  Second, you will create an ImpactStory profile.  Third, you’ll sign up for a ResearcherID, which will make your publications more easily discoverable in Web of Science. ImpactStory, Google Scholar, and Web of Science provide metrics and badges that demonstrate the impact of your research.  Once you’ve completed this workshop, it will be easier for funders, employers, and colleagues to identify your publications and see how they’re being used.
