In this workshop, we’ll introduce the main author identifiers and researcher profiles to you, like ORCID iD, Publons, Google Scholar, ResearchGate. These identifiers and profiles help you to be visible as a researcher and to make sure your works and activities are correctly attributed to you. But there are many available: which ones are worth the effort of maintaining; which ones can make your life as a researcher easier?


For participants from outside Erasmus University, attending the course requires:

  • Patience when explaining EUR specific tools, like EZproxy, Lean Library
  • Contact Judith Gulpers prior to the course so she can check the databases and tools you have access to at your home institution

There are no other preparatory assignments for this workshop, but in order to actively participate in the workshop you could have a look at the at the training and support portal  of the University Library (EUR participants only). There you can choose relevant e-modules covering the whole research cycle.
