Managing your online researcher identity and promoting your work

2,202 views

Published on

This is a presentation given at the 2015 Kathleen A. Zar Pre-Symposium Workshop on April 30th 2015.

Many of us nowadays invest significant amounts of time in sharing our activities and opinions with friends and family via social networking tools. However, despite the availability of many platforms for scientists to connect and share with their peers in the scientific community the majority do not make use of these tools, despite their promise and potential impact and influence on our future careers. We are being indexed and exposed on the internet via our publications, presentations and data. We also have many more ways to contribute to science, to annotate and curate data, to “publish” in new ways, and many of these activities are as part of a growing crowdsourcing network. This presentation will provide an overview of the various types of networking and collaborative sites available to scientists and ways to expose your scientific activities online. Many of these can ultimately contribute to the developing measures of you as a scientist as identified in the new world of alternative metrics. Participating offers a great opportunity to develop a scientific profile within the community and may ultimately be very beneficial, especially to scientists early in their career.

Presentations? • Post-publication, how much work is put into sharing with the community? • More visible does NOT mean better science
  11. 11. Your Profile as a Scientist • If you are an active scientist – i.e. already published, active researcher, generator of data, early, mid- or late career there is lots to do! • If you are a junior scientist the benefits of investing time now will provide a strong foundation for your future! • So what do I do??
