Maximize your Research Impact Series

Understanding how your researcher identity and your research outputs (articles, books, patents, conference proceedings, posters, data contributions, videos, blog posts, etc.) are measured and quantified is crucial for researchers at all stages to understand. How is your work found and used by others? What type of citation and usage footprint is your published work creating? What is the impact of your research and contribution to your community over time?

Your researcher identity is formed by combining all of your research output and its impact. Taking charge of your researcher identity can help distinguish your work from other authors, giving more accurate insight into your impact and helping create a portfolio of your contributions.

Workshop attendees will understand the importance of tracking the impact of your output and how this is done. You will also learn how to take charge of and manage your researcher identity so that you are uniquely identified and connected to all of your contributions over time.
