Creating and Cultivating a Scholarly Identity within Digital Worlds

Marie Radford, Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Vanessa Kitzie, Diana Floegel, Gary Radford, Mary Chayko

Increasing and measuring scholarly impact represents a growing concern for scholars, who must navigate emerging, data-driven methods for communicating their influence. Relevant to academics at all levels, this workshop focuses on scholarly identity, which includes endeavors by scholars to build and promote their reputation, network, and research. Facilitators, who are scholars from three disciplines at various stages of their careers, will explore this topic from different perspectives via a discussion and breakout sessions. Additionally, facilitators will present preliminary findings of an exploratory study concerning how researchers use online platforms, such as academic social networking sites (SNS), to create and cultivate scholarly impact. Workshop outcomes include: identifying scholars’ needs in establishing and furthering scholarly identities, exploring optimal use of online platforms to achieve professional goals, providing hands-on practice with selected sites, and developing strategies to increase visibility by leveraging help from resources such as SNS, apps, Open Access, and librarians.

Now, New or Next Generation? How current iSchool studies on Research Support Services will inform Education Programs for Future Translational Data Roles

Elizabeth Josephine Lyon, Andrew Cox, Stephen Pinfield, Laura Sbafi, Mary Anne Kennan

This interactive workshop will examine the role of iSchools in data curation, research data management and bibliometrics for open science and open scholarship. It will draw on recent research by the team in a range of areas, and will update on these studies. Topics to be covered include research data management, and specifically a review of the current landscape in terms of research support service maturity, featuring a new maturity model. Bibliometrics will be addressed in the context of competencies required in this critical area. Finally, the Workshop will look into future challenges for iSchools associated with educating for next generation data roles in areas including Data Rescue and Re-Use, Transparency, Truth and Trust and Beyond Data Analytics. The challenges for iSchools in re-positioning the educational curriculum to support these emerging and translational roles will be explored, and there will be opportunities for participants to contribute to these key debates.
