B17. Online Research Profiles: Helping Faculty Make their Research More Visible on the Web
A professional online presence allows scholars to increase the visibility of their publications, to identify new colleagues and potential collaborators worldwide, and to increase the reach, impact, and citations of their work. At NJIT library, a new service works directly with researchers to construct and maintain their profiles on the various platforms. Learn how librarians are uniquely qualified to guide faculty in creating and managing their publications list, to use reference management software, and to leverage services such as Academia.edu, ResearchGate, Scopus, ORCID, and the NJIT faculty webpage to enhance their online identity on multiple platforms. Discover the benefits and pitfalls encountered in implementing this service.
