You know your research is good. But is it discoverable and accessible? How can you build your reputation in a large and diverse bibliographic universe? Science librarians can provide some tips. Come and learn how to build profiles in Scopus, WoS, Google Scholar, Mendeley, ORCID, and others. The online profiles will enable your work to be viewed from an accurate perspective and will maximize potentially important bibliometrics. Make your work globally discoverable by publishing in open access journals or depositing your authorís final versions in your institutional or subject repository. Take links to your articles and use them all over the web in places like LinkedIn,, your CV and more to increase your research impact.
