Using online researcher profiles to increase your research visibility - Research Visibility Focus Week In-Person

Managing your online identity as a researcher has never been more important as many funders, organisations, databases, and even journals include information from online profiles as supporting evidence in successful applications or as digital identifiers to separate you from others (especially if you have a common name).

This session will explore several key online platforms for researchers including:


• Google Scholar 

• RIS (Research Information System) 

This session will include time for you to set up and/or update your profiles with the support of the Library team.

By the end of this session, you will know how to set up your profile and manage your identity on the different platforms. You will also know about the benefits of engaging with the different profiles, what the University of Essex’s requirements are, and how to use our internal Research Information System (RIS) to monitor your grants, publications, and research & teaching activities. 

This session links to the following areas of the Research Development Framework: 

  • Citations and online profiles
