Research Visibility: Introduction

Research Visibility: Why and How

Increasing the visibility of your research may lead to your work having a greater impact both within and outside academia.

The following are some of the steps you can take to increase the visibility of your research.

Make your work (and related data sets) open access

Set up and maintain researcher profiles 

  • Make sure you're findable when someone searches your name, and make sure what they find is an accurate record of your work.
  • Learn more about researcher profiles (ORCID, Google Scholar, Scopus Author ID, ResearcherID, Yaffle)

Create a web presence (maybe even a blog)

  • Having a website (whether your own or through Memorial) is another way to make sure you're findable on the web. Beyond a traditional list of journal articles, you can share a bio, works-in-progress, resources, etc. If you add a blog you can share your thoughts and solicit feedback on topics you're thinking about in a less formal tone than in a scholarly publication.
