BUILDING AN ONLINE ACADEMIC PROFILE Pamela Andrews Repository

BUILDING AN ONLINE ACADEMIC PROFILE Pamela Andrews Repository Librarian for Scholarly Works, University of North Texas @plandrews14 | [email protected] Table of Contents The value of a connected, curated academic profile. Questions to ask yourself when creating a profile Tools for Your Profile Combining Resources Campus Resources

Q&A Connections Google challenge! Pamela Andrews unt Pamela Andrews fsu Pamela Andrews ucf Most of the search results do not reference my connection to other institutions Services that connect across all three: LinkedIn, Twitter When searching for you or your work, only most current employment or work is visible.

Curation Why would anything I dont want appear on my profile? Services may think this is you and create links on your behalf in an attempt to be smarter. Automation is not always accurate Why wouldnt I want to be everywhere? Having multiple profiles means maintaining (and remembering) multiple profiles, or risking appearing outdated or stagnated. Why should I care who hosts my work? What analytics are available, and what analytics do you care about?

Questions for You What image of yourself do you want to project? What do you want this profile to do for you? Digital warehouse for your work Journal/Record of your activities Measure of your impact Brag wall Space for informal work Is it robust enough to sustain your plans for the future? What material do you want someone to engage with first? How much time can you commit to maintaining your profile? How are other peers representing themselves?

Tools for Your Profile Spaces designed specifically to be a landing page for your scholarly identity Each of these offer similar features: hosting documents, citation metrics, network of colleagues, etc. Example profiles: Sherry Turkle, MIT Angela Jarrett, FSU, soon to be post-doc at UTA Holly Dolan, UNT LinkedIn (linkedin.com) ResearchGate (researchgate.net) Academia.edu (academia.edu) GoogleScholar (scholar.google.com) ORCID (orcid.org)

Figshare (figshare.com) LinkedIn Affordances Widely used among industry and academic organizations Can document employment, publications, projects, awards, etc. Can upload documents such as a CV Has social media features to post items, form connections, and keep up with peers. Can see who has viewed your profile along with your activity that might have increased views Can publish profile updates to your network Weaknesses

Profile is confined to one page All added documents go on same profile page Premium features require subscription fee Does not track more than who/where is viewing your profile Website contains a lot of advertising ResearchGate Affordances Tries to find your work for you Widely used among academics, and allows for nuance between institutional and outside researchers Can identify yourself by multiple disciplines and list areas of expertise Tracks user reads, downloads, profile views, and citations; displays h-index

Can generate DOIs for unpublished research youve added Weaknesses Limit of 3 major disciplines and 9 sub disciplines, and may not even list your discipline. All categories are pre-set. Photos come from google search. Also searches for you, possibly incorporating incorrect information May have already created a blank profile for you. A lot of pop-ups asking people to join or directing them to similar articles that may not be yours Has been known to send unsolicited email invitations to your coauthors to join Commercial Publishing Platform Academia.edu

Affordances Facebook of Academia Everyone is using it Builds social networks specifically within academia Searches for you Minimal layout Weaknesses Facebook of Academia Premium features for a fee Recently considered charging users a fee to have their papers recommended Users must connect to download Visitors can only see overall views and followers/followees, no other statistics

Google Scholar Affordances Free profile directly related to Google, provides links to works, including links through institutional library subscriptions Displays citation indices on front page Displays coauthors on front page Allows custom areas of interest and verifies identity with email Allows automatic posting of articles or review of items possibly associated with you Can receive email updates Weaknesses Little customization offered No collaboration tools available, nor networking beyond co-authors

Very few features ORCID Affordances ORCID creates a persistent digital identifier, allowing all works to connect to you despite name changes, institution changes, etc. Becoming more widely used among publishers and funding agencies to identify authors Free, Open, non-profit, community-driven resource, and only holds nonsensitive information Will be integrated with Vireo for future submission of ETDs Also creates landing page for scholarly identity and list of associated items Weaknesses

Searching is difficult within the registry Figshare Affordances Free Generates DOIs for your work All works are publically accessible through Creative Commons licenses Shows views, downloads, blog references, tweets, and other mentions. Weaknesses Applies Creative Commons license to submitted works, so requires careful consideration of any copyright issues prior to

uploading Combining Resources While one of the goals, and hopefully results, of an online profile is to reduce the number of empty, neglected, and incorrect references to your work, no one service will provide everything you need Combinations: ORCID and almost every other service: creates connections between works and profile. Use as the center of your online web. Figshare and almost every other service: use to host your documents and link out to other profile pages, particularly with conference items and other grey areas not always published in traditional venues.

UNT Scholarly Works Affordances UNT Graduate Student Works collection in discussions to accept student works outside of Electronic Theses and Dissertations Provides stable URL to link within CV, resume, or other spaces Free hosting, forever. Tracks usage Is publically available, with the option to restrict to UNT community if necessary Weaknesses None (just kidding) Work is contained within UNT library
