Research Impact Challenge: Identity : Building Your Academic Profile


Monday, February 15th
Building Your Academic Profile


Monday's Challenges focus on the theme of Identity: Building Your Academic Profile. Building your academic profile online can help demonstrate your authority, expertise and research interests. The internet has become the starting point for all searches, so you want to make sure that people are finding authorized biographical and contact information about you. This is especially important when you're starting your academic career.  

In today's Challenges, we'll show you how to create your unique scholar identifier, get you onto Google Scholar and help you increase your Googleability, and develop your profile on an academic social network.
