Welcome to Day 2 of the Fondren Library Scholarly Impact Challenge!
Today’s challenge is to make the most of Google Scholar by claiming your profile.
If you’ve ever searched for scholarly literature on the web, you’ve almost certainly encountered Google Scholar. But did you know that this tool can also be used to keep track of your own publications (and publications that cite your work)?
Enhance your Profile
Is your research subject to any public access mandates? Check out this blog post about tracking and managing the status of your publications in Google Scholar.
Congratulations! You've completed Day 2 of the Scholarly Impact Challenge! Your Google Scholar profile is now set up, ready to add your new publications as they appear on the web, and you’ll receive email alerts every time Google Scholar finds a new publication or citation that it associates with you.
Do you have scholarly work that Google Scholar hasn’t yet indexed and connected to your profile? What about other kinds of work, like syllabi, instructional materials, or slide decks that you'd like to save and share with colleagues? One way to make your work more visible to Google Scholar and to others is to deposit it in an appropriate digital repository. Tomorrow’s challenge will show you how!
