Session Abstract

Relevant to academics at all levels, this workshop focuses on scholarly identity, including endeavors to build and promote their reputation, networks, and research impact. Such practices are increasingly essential for tenure and promotion, and can be accomplished and measured through data-driven methods/analytics for communicating and measuring influence. Workshop facilitators, in various career stages from three disciplines, will present viewpoints on considerations, connections, and consequences related to scholarly networks, and findings from an exploratory study of researchers’ use of online platforms, including social networking sites, to create and cultivate scholarly impact. Subsequent discussion and break-out sessions will provide hands-on demonstrations of selected digital tools, such as Twitter,, ORCID, and ResearchGate. Workshop outcomes include: identifying scholars’ needs in establishing and furthering scholarly identities, hands-on use of online platforms, and developing strategies to increase visibility by leveraging help from various resources including academic libraries. Participants should bring laptops/tablets or another smart device.

No contributions were assigned to this session.
