Managing an Online Scholarly Presence
(Ed Warga and Morgan Daniels)

Social media has been making an impact on all our lives including how we work and maintain a professional network. This workshop offers some ideas for managing your online presence with researcher profiles, researcher IDs, and article level altmetrics. We will discuss options for researcher profiles like Google Scholar,, Researchgate, and Vivo; get started with researcher IDs to help link online content to an individual researcher; and explore how altmetrics allow you to identify important work by tracking citations and mentions of work in blogs, twitter, and other social networks.

All workshops are held from 9-10 AM in Medical Center North, room A-3210 (CRC Conference Room).
