Pimp my Profile and the researcher profile health check: Practical, individualised researcher support initiatives co-created by library and faculty
Thompson, Ellen E. & French, Sally (2016) Pimp my Profile and the researcher profile health check: Practical, individualised researcher support initiatives co-created by library and faculty. In ALIA National Conference 2016, 29 August - 2 September 2016, Adelaide, S.A. (Unpublished)
Recent literature on researcher profiles and social media tends to focus either on citation tools with profiling functionality, or the relationship between social media for scholarly communication and formal metrics. Less often does the literature put the researcher at the centre, and discuss the online researcher profile as an holistic persona, with the tools as enablers rather than drivers.
The Pimp my Profile initiative was developed by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Creative Industries Faculty Library Liaison Team in collaboration with the Research Leaders in the Creative Industries Faculty, and is focussed on supporting researchers to create their online academic persona, improve their online visibility and develop an individual and institutional ‘brand’.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
