“Stand out and be counted” – session for researchers

Flower_Pixabay

Back by popular demand! This is a half-day workshop to 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:

Feedback from 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'”
