    The workshop addresses the different possibilities of publishing your research and making it visible, findable and citable for others. A focus will be set on the expectations funders have nowadays concerning open access to publications and research data management. We further address the options of researcher IDs and academic social networks and have a look at criteria to estimate the impact of your work. The workshop is open to researchers of all disciplines.


    The workshop addresses:

    1. Publication strategies in the digital era
    2. Open access publishing from preprint servers to peer reviewed journals: threat or chance for your career?
    3. Publishing research data
    4. Costs of publishing?
    5. Legal aspects of publishing
    6. Distinguish your works and enhance their visibility using researcher IDs such as ORCID
    7. What to consider when using academic social networks for your research –, Researchgate, Mendeley and other options
    8. Assessing your research impact: Is it all about Impact Factor?


    Inputs, group discussion, hands-on activities. The participants will be asked in advance, what kind of needs and interests they have, which tools they are already using and which they want to get to know.
    Second day: Practical exercise with the discussion of concrete publication projects.
