Strategic publishing

Tuesday 4 September 2018, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM, Dixson Library Training Lab

Making your research impactful, engaging, and visible is greatly assisted by the choices you make for publishing. Does your intended publisher target the right audiences? Can you work be found easily? Does your intended publisher have proven past performance? The Dixson Library will provide advice on various aspects of strategic publishing including predatory publishing, open access and open data, database indexing, and journal rankings.


Online researcher profiles

Tuesday 18 September 2018, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM, Dixson Library Training Lab

A hands-on opportunity for researchers to create basic identifiers and profiles to quantify scholarly impact, make themselves ‘findable’ in an online world, share and find work beyond ‘publisher paywalls’, and facilitate connecting to others in the same field.


Engaging yourself and your research in non-traditional ways

Wednesday 3 October 2018, 2:00 PM-3:00 PM, Dixson Library Training Lab

A broad set of online profiling and engagement tools are available to researchers, but using them in a consistent and effective manner can seem like a steep learning curve. Mastering the basics of research profile tools can have a significant positive outcome for your research career. The Dixson Library will take a look at a variety of online author profile apps that help researchers disseminate and discuss their work, communicate with the wider research community, and find potential collaboration partners.
