Research Elevenses & Thesis Forum Recordings

The Research Elevenses sessions are now all available to watch online.

Distinguish yourself: Associate your research with you

ORCID is your free unique researcher identifier for life.  It allows you to unambiguously associate yourself with your research. Otherwise it can be difficult to know exactly who wrote a paper because many people have similar or identical names. ORCID is independent of any employer, funder or commercial concern. We will look at the benefits of ORCID and how simple it is to set up and maintain.

Unlocking REF2014: Text mining to show your impact

The Library is building a searchable full text database of the papers submitted by Leicester for REF2014.  It has already been used to help support a business case for a piece of equipment, but there may be many other applications.  This session explains how you can undertake your own text mining projects using EndNote and how the Library can help with larger-scale projects using specialist software.

Making an (online) exhibition of yourself with Omeka.net

Omeka.net is a web-publishing platform that allows anyone with an account to build digital exhibitions and online collections of photographs, audio, film and textual content. Researchers can publish digital essays, share primary source collections, and collaborate with others in the creation of digital scholarship. No technical knowledge is required, and it’s a simple and cost-effective way of presenting your research online. This session will provide a quick introduction using examples from Leicester and elsewhere.

Measure the wider impact of your research

Non-traditional metrics (alt-metrics) have become widely available in recent years to help you understand the wider impact of your work.  These complement rather than replace traditional citations and measure very different things.  This session will explore some of the metrics available: including article-level downloads, social media mentions, social bookmarking counts and recommendations.  What do they mean, and how can you access them to follow the progress of your papers?
