Show the Impact of Your Research
Register: October 3 & October 4
Want to know how to get credit for and demonstrate the impact of your research? This workshop is for you! We will discuss how author identifiers, such as ORCID iDs, can connect you to your publications, other research products, and grants. We will show you how to find the number of times an article has been cited, create a citation report for a set of articles or an author, and compare citation statistics for authors, journals or articles in a particular field. We will also discuss emerging metrics (‘altmetrics’), such as the number of times an article has been viewed or downloaded.

Celebrating Open Access: Busting Myths about Publishing Your Work
Register: October 17 & October 18
Like bigfoot and unicorns, some truths of publishing your work can seem a real mystery. We’ll separate fact from fiction and get to the heart of some widely-shared rumors related to your rights as an author and open access publishing.
Register: October 24 & October 25
In this 1 hour workshop, we’ll be using InDesign to create a poster, while providing an overview of other print design software. We’ll also share the importance of visual story telling, using design elements to tell your story, and provide the tips on print settings and resources on campus to get your poster printed. No prior experience with InDesign is needed!
And don’t forget about our Workshops on Demand. If you and your colleagues are interested in a workshop, but cannot attend due to a conflicting schedule, you can now request a Workshop on Demand: just let us know what your group is interested in, and we’ll create a workshop that works for you!
