Scholar Identification and Research Tools - Office Hours

Fall 2021


More Details

Let’s carve out some time to get prepared for scholarly work. Sign up for this session to update and add works to all of your scholarly profiles like ORCID, Google Scholar, and Publons. These tools seek to solve the name disambiguation problem by asking scholars to create a unique identifier, link all of their scholarly output to the platform, and use the identifier when submitting or creating future scholarly work. Author identifiers provide robust, and growing, integration into other indexes like Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, MLA International, and others. Author identifiers enable additional benefits, such as quantifying researcher citation metrics, and identifying and recognizing diverse outputs such as conferences, intellectual property, data sets, standards, open-access articles, creative work, and supervision of student scholarship.

 You might also use this time to create or modify:

  • Library database or GrantForward search alerts
  • Journal author submission profiles
  • Citation management account with browser and Word plug-ins

This session will be of interest to faculty and graduate students.

This is a Zoom workshop.

You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day before the workshop.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
