We’re repeating our popular “Stand Out and Be Counted” session for researchers in a new half-day format. This workshop will explore tools that can help you promote yourself and achieve the best visibility for your research. We aim to give an overview of the following:
- What can be counted about you? Citations, altmetrics and a look at the Scival benchmarking tool
- Your online identity – what are the pros and cons of maintaining profiles such as ORCID, Google Scholar and university systems (Cronfa, RIS & staff web pages)?
- Online networking and social spaces for researchers
The workshop is aimed at researchers with some publications but PhD students are also welcome to attend. Booking is essential – reserve your place now by clicking on the link below:
- Thur 5th November, 9.30-1pm, Singleton Park Campus, Library & Information Centre, Training Room 1 (Level 2 West)
- Wed 2nd December, 1-4.30pm, Bay Campus, A103 Engineering Central
Coffee and tea will be provided.
Feedback from our previous courses:
“I think this course should be mandatory for all new research staff. There were so many things I’ve never heard about and I found out my manager was on all the networks etc but she’s never told me about any of it. I’m telling everyone I know”
“I have changed my attitude 180 deg and noticed the importance of self-promotion online that could potentially enhance my employability and also contacts with people I could meet on conferences and seminars. I wish I had attended this course during my PhD so I could have enjoyed the profits of ‘standing out and being counted'”
