Build a strong online presence: increase the visibility of you and your research
Please note that we will be recording this webinar and a link to that
recording together with a pdf of the slide presentations (subject to the
consent of our presenters) will be sent to all registrants after the event.
Whether consciously curated or not, most researchers today will
have an online presence. By taking some simple steps to cultivate
this online presence, researchers can help focus audiences on the
professional content they want them to see.
Penny Presta and Anne Young are Subject Librarians at Monash University Library. They work with researchers in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences to develop expertise in strategic publishing, including techniques to increase the visibility and reach of researchers and their research outputs.
In this session, they will cover the pros and cons of online social networks, explain what a strong online presence looks like, address the importance of identifiers such as ORCID and DOIs for Altmetric tracking, and more.
Attendees of this webinar will:
- Learn how to build and maintain an effective researcher profile online
- Understand the importance of using unique identifiers for research
- Explore key strategies for increasing the visibility of you as a researcher and your work

Important notice regarding our webinars
AAG has been successfully running these webinars for number of years now. However we have noticed recently that increasing numbers of our registrants are experiencing difficulties when trying to join the online event.
In all cases this is as a result of the IT set-up at your end. Healthcare and academic workplaces are introducing increasing levels of security to guard against viruses and data theft. Some of those security measures are disrupting the connection to our Go-to-Training Software. There are also some situations where registrants need to make adjustments to the set-up of their home IT before they can successfully join.
It is therefore vitally important that you test your connection before the day of the event.
We are a small organisation in terms of employed staff and on the day of the event most of our resources are dedicated to delivering the webinar, we cannot therefore promise to be available to help you with connection enquiries either just before or after the event has actually started.

Once you complete the registrations process below you will get two e-mails. One from us confirming registration and the other from GoToTraining (the software that we use for our webinars) from this sender address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently Microsoft Outlook has been consigning these important emails to junk or spam. You need this second email in order to participate in the event, it contains the link that you need to join. Please ensure that you retrieve the item from spam/junk and "Report as not junk". Some of you may have to ask your IT departments for help in unblocking this address.
Apologies for this potential inconvenience but we are at the mercy of the IT industry in all this.
