Publishing the results of your research is the first step. How can you increase the reach and visibility of your work? Hear from three presenters on tools to help present, disseminate, and track use of your scholarly work.

For UCSF researchers and faculty, UCSF Profiles is an essential tool for presenting your research portfolio to the world. UCSF Profiles pages are viewed by industry, media, foundations, NIH, other universities and more. Learn how to optimize this tool to advance your career, recruit staff and research collaborators, and showcase your accomplishments to the online world.

Kudos is a web-based service that helps researchers and their institutions and funders to maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. Kudos provides a platform for assembling and creating information to help search filtering, for sharing information to drive discovery, and for measuring and monitoring the effect of these activities.

Altmetric is a service that tracks a range of sources to capture and collate activity around scholarly content, helping researchers monitor and report on the attention surrounding their work.

12 - 1 PM: Speakers Brian Turner (UCSF Profiles), Rebecca Shumbata (Kudos, via webconference), and Stacy Konkiel (Altmetric)

1 - 1:30 PM: Q & A /Working Session - feel free to bring your own device if you’d like to work on your profile in UCSF Profiles or Kudos, or check your Altmetric scores.
