Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Researcher profiles and metrics that matter

Today’s researchers are obliged to include a variety of metrics in their applications for grant funding, and promotion and tenure files. They also develop online profiles to enhance their reputation and attract collaborators. Whether welcome or worrisome, researcher profiles and metrics have become commonplace. So how can librarians help?

It begins with a conversation. Discover how to put researchers at ease with the notion of metrics, and what metrics can and cannot convey. Find out more about how to select the best metrics for different disciplines and at different stages of the research career. And learn how institutional initiatives, such as instituting the ORCID researcher iD and providing early education, can provide them with lifelong benefits. By helping to clarify and codify certain processes, you will ensure your researchers are their own best advocates.

TOPICS

- Clearing up misconceptions about bibliometric indicators
- Metrics as a means to counterbalance other biases
- Telling researchers’ stories through metrics
- Metrics for different disciplines and career stages
- Promoting ORCID at various points in the researchers’ career
- Touchpoints for researcher training

  • Making the IR Work for your Context, CCT College Dublin: A Case Study Recorded: Nov 18 2020 58 mins
    Marie O'Neill and Justin Smyth, both of CCT College Dublin
    A small team at CCT College Dublin was given a very big goal. A new IR and faculty profiling tool from Digital Commons was provided to enable strategic developments pertaining to institutional scholarly activity. In the span of little more than a year – and in the midst of COVID - Team CCT has made quick strides in using their IR to underpin and showcase teaching and learning activities, student achievement, quality and enhancement projects, research activity (including student research), and sectoral engagement. Although in the relatively early stages of development, the IR is now successfully embedded across many institutional activities with further plans in the pipeline which will be explored in this webinar.

    During this one hour program we’ll cover the following topics:
    1. Library Services and the IR Team at CCT College
    2. Tailoring IR Design To Your Context
    3. Strategic Application of the IR at CCT
    4. Student Work, A Catalyst for IR Engagement

    There will be time for Q&A so be ready for an engaging conversation

  • Librarian best practices for uninterrupted access to research & education Recorded: Aug 20 2020 37 mins
    Emily Singley, Boston College; Naomi Visser, Stellenbosch University
    Librarians play a critical role in ensuring their researchers, students and faculty have access to research and the learning tools they need to be successful.

    The global pandemic has forced educational institutions to close campuses and shift learning and research services to remote options. This shift took many people by surprise, but not to librarians who were already prepared to provide remote access and online resources to their users without disruption. In this webinar, librarians share their best practices on enabling uninterrupted access to research and education.

    Topics covered in this webinar include:

    •Infrastructure readiness – were policies in place for potential university lockdowns or was there a need to provide them?
    •What worked right away and what improvements were made to services that didn’t work out of the box?
    •Communicating and promoting available remote access options to users
    •Challenges to working remotely
    •Showcasing the move to remote online learning

  • Open science and the reward system: how can they be aligned? Recorded: Jul 2 2020 89 mins
    Moniek Tromp, Matthew DiFranco, Véronique De Herde, Andrew Plume, Nick Fowler, Stephane Berghmans
    How does the current reward system reflect how we value research? Is a reform of this system necessary to encourage researchers to engage in open science activities? How do current and proposed reward systems support early career researchers?

    Questions on how academics' careers and contributions are assessed and valued are under discussion. This webinar brings together a panel of experts on open science and career assessment to focus on the current reward system and the potential for its reform. This promises to be a lively exchange of ideas between representatives of Eurodoc, Young Academy of Europe, and Elsevier. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of possible changes to how we consider academic value, retain mobility internationally and beyond academia, and create incentives for open science activities.

    Join our panel of experts as they discuss this timely topic.

    Rebecca Morin, Potenza Atiogbe, Kristina Hopkins
    Better workflow, big impact!

    A large pain point for researchers is having time to stay up to date in their field, conduct their own research and administer their work. Librarians can have a tremendous impact on their success by providing access to and promoting helpful tools, and teaching best practices in knowledge search, creation and management.

    In this webinar, a recent PhD graduate will discuss the student perspective on learning about the research workflow, highlighting areas of success and how the library played an important role in the journey. And two librarians who will explore their role in enabling the effective collaboration of research teams and ensuring researchers have the skills to manage their research data.

    TOPICS

    • Introducing and encouraging use of research tools
    • Strategies for discovering and analyzing peer-reviewed literature while working remotely
    • Community engagement as a way to build your CV
