Unit 5: Disseminating your research

R5 Skills for Researchers: Raising your Research Impact & Profile


In line with government and university advice, we have suspended all face-to-face support. However, we’re still here to help you via our online service.   If you have an enquiry, please contact and we will get back to you within one working day. Research workshops you have signed up for will still go ahead using online materials  - we will be in contact closer to the time to discuss details. 


This workshop will help doctoral students to think about ways of raising their research profile and sharing their findings. It will look at the role of journal impact factors (Journal Citation Reports/Scimago) and how you can demonstrate your scholarly impact using citation indexes such as Scopus. There will also be a hands-on look at research identity services such as Orcid, plus a look at the use of social media tools to promote research.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand how to demonstrate your scholarly impact through citation indexing and Altmetrics
  • Appreciate the importance of developing your online research identity
  • Gain a greater awareness of how Social Media can be used to share research
