YPPDO: Kayleigh Bohemier, Yale CSSSI, “Beyond Academia: How to Make Yourself Really Easy to Find”
In academia, the h-index rules, and academic scientists use scholarly metrics to evaluate themselves and their peers for major professional milestones. How visible is your academic output (and performance) to people without subscription journal and database access? That depends, and many articles are still paywalled. We’ll talk about how to build effective scholarly and professional profiles and the delicate balance between helping others find your work and the author agreements that limit you. We will also discuss how to use library databases to research industries and companies — plus some things you can start doing now to make yourself stand out.
