[Invitation] Networking: Creating a Credible Personal Impact

We are pleased to invite all academics, especially early career researchers, and postgraduate students to attend a workshop entitled Networking: Creating a Credible Personal Impact┬áscheduled for Tuesday 4 September 2018 at 10am – 12noon in H1B13.


This workshop will focus on increasing your personal impact through citations and social media. The workshop will largely draw on the personal experiences of the presenter, who will also be happy to learn from the workshop delegates, as much as he will relate his own experiences.

Part 1 will focus on citations and how you can (legitimately) increase your citations when writing your own papers, and how to encourage others to cite your papers.

Citation stacking methods that should NOT be used will be discussed so that you are not in danger of being blacklisted by journals, or even publishers.

Part 2 will consider how social media can be used to create personal impact. Drawing largely on personal experience, the presenter will suggest how you can effectively use social media to increase your personal impact. A key element of this part of the workshop will be the tools and workflows that are used by the workshop presenter.

Part 3 will draw together using social media to increase personal impact, as well as the citations to your work.
