Oxford University Press President Niko Pfund will deliver a series of talks about all things publishing on Monday, October 23! These talks are open to students, faculty, and anyone else involved in research! The schedule is as follows:
2:00 PM, Randall Library 1022
Like many media industries, scholarly publishing is changing at a feverish pace. At the same time, the foundational relationship between author and editor remains largely unchanged. What are the changes buffeting American university presses? How is marketing changing? How is the academy itself accelerating or putting the brakes on these changes? Most importantly, what should aspiring authors know about the factors influencing decision making at academic publishing houses?
4:00 PM, Randall Library Auditorium (second floor)
This Open Access Week, join Oxford University Press President Niko Pfund for a discussion about how advancements in artificial intelligence are changing the scholarly publishing landscape. The event will take place on Monday, October 23 at 4 PM in Randall Library's auditorium.
Each day of Open Access Week (October 23-27), work through the activities below to help you as a researcher better understand and manage your online scholarly presence, as well as the impact and reach of your research. Complete all five activities by the end of the week for a spot on a leaderboard that will be permanently displayed on this page! Just send links to your completed profiles and activities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is ORCID?
In short, an ORCID iD is a unique 16-digit researcher ID number associated with you. An ORCID iD is increasingly requested by publishers, funding agencies, and others that want to ensure that publications, funding, and other forms of scholarly work are accurately associated with you. An ORCID iD is used by certain University systems, allowing you to enter information once and reuse it wherever it's needed. Getting it done now means you don't have to worry about it later!

Today's challenge is to make the most of Google Scholar by claiming your profile.
If you have ever searched for scholarly literature on the web, you have almost certainly encountered Google Scholar. But did you know that this tool can also be used to keep track of your own publications (and publications that cite your work)?
Here is how to do it:
Scholars@UNCW is designed to showcase the scholarship and research activities of current UNCW faculty, to share areas of research expertise, and to connect faculty and researchers with common interests to each other. Scholars@UNCW can display your scholarly work, visualize co-author networks and Altmetrics, and make your profile as a scholar discoverable to the community, allowing for increased opportunities for you to collaborate, communicate the impact of your research, and browse the work on other researchers on campus. For more information and to edit your profile, check out our Scholars@UNCW guide!
Perhaps you’ve shared article pre-prints or other forms of scholarly work with your colleagues over social media or email, or posted them to your personal website. Using a digital repository can make the common activity of exchanging work with colleagues easier and more stable.
By depositing your work in UNCW's institutional repository Seahawk DOCKS or a disciplinary repository, you'll get:
For Seahawk DOCKS deposits, contact email@example.com. Otherwise, you're welcome to deposit your work in a preprint or disciplinary repository!
Today we’ll look at concrete ways the impact of that work might be measured, focusing on this question: How do you get from the work you do, to an appropriate metric for measuring and communicating its impact? Let's take a look at the Metrics Toolkit.
