    October 21, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
    Location: Virtual Event

    When it’s time to share your research, it’s important to know which strategy best supports your goals. With the right approach, you can boost your own research profile or make your work more accessible to public communities that may not have access to subscription databases.

    During this virtual workshop, explore the differences between depositing your work in institutional repositories, like UDSpace, and websites, such as Academia.edu and ResearchGate. In doing this, you can determine which method is best for your specific needs.

    You’ll also learn how to use tools like Microsoft Academic and Google Scholar to see how other scholars are citing your research.

    This workshop is open to the public, and is co-sponsored by the Graduate College. It will be led by Paige Morgan, digital publishing and copyright librarian, and head of Digital Scholarship and Publishing; and William Simpson, institutional repository librarian, and librarian for the physical sciences and engineering.
