Establishing Your Digital Identity: Scholarly Author Identifiers

July 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

An online event for for underrepresented graduate students in STEM at Hopkins

This workshop is the first in a three-part series for underrepresented graduate students in STEM at Hopkins to help them grow their digital presence among their peers, the public, and future employers.

Scholarly identifiers help researchers establish their presence among peers and is part of their digital identity. Identifier platforms such as Scopus, Google Scholar, and ORCID can track a researcher’s scholarly output and impact, establish them among other researchers with similar names, and more. They are also used by other organizations as well such as funders for grant applications and scholarly publishers.

However, college students are unfamiliar with them and unsure how or where to get started using the platforms. If you are new to author identifiers or want learn more about them, join our workshop with scholarly communications expert Robin Sinn.

The event will be held virtually on the Zoom platform. Registration is required and closes at 12:00 pm on June 20, 2021. A Zoom link will be emailed to you the day before and the day of the event.
