Faculty Outreach & Networking Events (FONE)
Raising Your Research Profile with ResearcherID, Oct 2010

FONE is a monthly meeting of (women and men) faculty, students, and staff. Each session begins with a brief presentation on one of a range of faculty development topics (grantseeking, leadership development, communicating science, etc.) followed by an opportunity to network with Brown colleagues.


This month we demo ResearcherID, available through the University Library. ResearcherID provides the global research community with an index to author information. By assigning a unique identifier to each author who participates, ResearcherID standardizes and clarifies author names and citations and makes your information search more straightforward and accessible. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists, and explore how research is used around the world. Use ResearcherID authentication in Web of Knowledge to create automatic email alerts or RSS feeds for saved searches or article citations.
