UpSkills: Using Citation Databases
This session is aimed at graduate researchers and will focus on effective strategies for getting the most from citation databases such as Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar: Track the work of leading experts; map past and current trends in your specific search area; analyse the impact of published research; and keep up-to-date with what has been published in your field.

Information Session: "Claim your ORCID and unlock your researcher profiles" (Faculty of Arts)
Researcher profiles such as Google Scholar can help increase your online visibility, allow you to take credit for you work, find out who cites your work, and be prepared for applications which ask for a demonstration of your research impact. An Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a permanent identifier which facilitates disambiguation of researchers and research outputs and is increasingly used by funding bodies and journal publishers. This one-hour information session for researchers in the Faculty of Arts will give an overview of the digital researcher profile landscape. Bring your own device to set up profiles and your ORCID during the session. The scheduled times don’t suit? Contact Julia or Monica via the link below and we can organise a bespoke session for you or your research group.
Location: Arts West, Digital Studio (Level 3 - Room 307, access via West Lift)
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.
