Maximize Your Research Impact: Researcher Identity (PART 2)

This is part of the Maximize Your Research Impact Series

Where: Gerstein Science Information Centre, Instruction Lab (2nd floor, Morrison Pavilion)

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.

After attending and participating in this hands-on workshop you 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.

Part 2: Maximize Your Research Impact: Researcher Identity

​Part two addresses the management of your researcher identity, focusing on: 

  1. The importance of a researcher identifier (e.g. ORCID iD, author profiles, etc.) to distinguish you and your work from others;
  2. Taking ownership of and managing your researcher identity (e.g. Impactstory, Google Scholar Profiles, ResearcherID)

You will also learn how to increase the visibility of your research, as well as assess the strengths and weaknesses of research quantification strategies.You will leave with the following outputs: ORCID iD (author identifier) as well as the beginning of a personal research impact summary. Bring your current CV or examples of your scholarly output (helpful, but not required).

** Bring your own laptop or use a PC provided.
