Maximizing Your Research Impact

 12:00 pm – 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 25, 2022, via Zoom

Determining the impact of your research can be challenging. During this program, participants will be provided useful tips and tools for optimizing the reach of their work. Attendees will gain a series of strategic skills to help ensure their published research reaches a wide audience and its research impact can be tracked. Topics covered will include writing a plain language summary of a study, optimizing abstract writing for database discoverability, choosing the best journal, understanding open access publishing and author rights, tracking publications with ORCID, My Bibliography, and other tools, and calculating research impact as an individual or group.

Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe knowledge of plain language summaries and database discoverability to abstract writing
  2. Summarize authorship rights and publishing options relating to open access, copyright, and author agreements
  3. List author and publication impact tracking tools to monitor scholarship and measure its impact

Target Audience:  This program is designed for all researchers who publish or would like to publish journal articles, although, the content is also applicable to other types of scholarship.

Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00. (UNC Affiliates are considered to be faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)
