7 steps to raising your research profile
Getting noticed promoting yourself and your research online
This workshop will help you develop strategies for managing your online research presence by considering the following questions:
Which online tools and platforms are the most useful to me?
How can I find the time to use social media tools to promote my research?
How can I maximise access to my research?
How do I know if my online presence strategies are effective?
Who's talking about your research online
A new way to track who's talking about your research
Researchers are increasingly required to demonstrate the impact that their research is having beyond traditional academia. The emerging area of altmetrics offers new and powerful ways to track and report on the online attention of research.
This session will provide an overview of the tools and support that the Library provides to University of Manchester researchers in this new area of scholarly communications.
During this session we will consider the following:
How are altmetrics being used by publishers, funders and research institutions?
How can I find out my own altmetric data?
How can I benefit from altmetric data?
