Getting your research published does not mean it get noticed. With the number of papers growing and researchers reading fewer journals cover to cover, you need to work to get you and your research noted. This is relevant because in the end we are (or should) not just publish our research, but have our research impact our academic colleagues in the field, and the larger relevant community in society.
While I don’t have an academic foundation in teaching anyone this, I will share some of my experiences – many by luck, some by design – that enabled me to obtain visibility for my research results in the wider academic community. I will share both experiences from when I was a junior scholar and from now that I have some more grey hair.
As this is a workshop, we will get the participants to work on thinking of what you could do, given your research, career phase, and ambitions, to become more visible.
