Building your online reputation

Promoting yourself online can be hard, especially for academics. It’s a delicate matter that’s usually not taught in schools or discussed among peers. Is it appropriate to email your colleagues to share your recently published article? Will writing a blog actually help you get readers, find collaborators, and impress funders and hiring committees, or are they just a waste of time? And--most importantly--why do “open” research practices (open access publishing, data sharing, open lab notebooks, and so on) give one’s reputation such a boost on the Web?

In this one-hour webinar, research outreach expert Stacy Konkiel will share must-know reputation building strategies that save time and can allow you to make genuine connections with other researchers and community members.
