Get Credit for Your Research

Description:You’ve gone through the pains of completing the research and disseminating the results, but how can you make sure you are fully recognized for the work? Do you like eating pizza? Citing an article is no longer enough to prove impact. Researchers now opt for open access, tweet/like/share on social media, or follow less traditional paths and share raw data. Come to our Tech Lunch Series on Wednesday April 29th in the Norris Medical Library East Conference Room and learn to share not just what research you’ve completed but demonstrate the impact your work has had in the field. We’ll discuss:

  • creating a unique researcher ID
  • tracking how often your work is cited
  • using altmetrics
  • identifying data repositories

We’ll also have pizza and bottled water that is sure to have a positive impact on your hunger!
