    I hope this workshop looks into http://www.impactstory.org. Such a great tool! And no, they’re not paying me to say this 😉

      We will certainly mention it but unfortunately we can’t emphasize it as much as we would have done once as not everyone will have the means to pay for the service. We generally focus on tools that are free for our staff to use (either the uni pays the sub or free for all on the web).

        Fair enough. I hope the university will consider subscribing to Impactstory in future, as it integrates really well with ORCID and Google Scholar. Best of all, it’s open source!
