So you’ve put in all the hard work and completed the 20 Days to Research Impact Challenge – well done – but there’s one more thing you should do, just to take advantage of your efforts.
You created a whole bunch of profiles – ResearchGate, Twitter, and LinkedIn, for example – why not have them visible on your UON web profile? This is yet another strategy to effectively increase the traffic between the various satellites of your online presence to their center – your web profile. Nexus makes this possible with a minimum amount of fuss.
The Connect with Me area of your UON web profile hosts a range of research networking and social media links. How do you get these icons onto your web profile? Easy. First, log-in to Nexus and select the Biography tab (top left of screen) from your home page. ‘Connect with Me’ links can be entered into two places.
This section of Nexus is designed more for your social networking and blogging profiles. You have the option of entering the following:
- Personal Blog
- Personal Webpage
- UON Blogs
This area is reserved for your researcher identifiers proper:
- Google Scholar
- ResearcherID (your Web of Science identifier)
- Scopus Author ID
To create the link, select either of the above and simply insert it into the top field, ensuring that you’ve selected the relevant resource from the drop-down menu:
NOTE: Please insert only the part of the identifier/address that identifies your individual account.
For example, to enter a Scopus identifier (ScopusAuthorID: 35346290800), you only need to record the numeric component and for a system such as Research Gate (http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Fred_Smith3) you would record the identifier Fred_Smith3
That’s it! Keep in mind that the link icons won’t appear on your web profile immediately. They may take up to 48 hours.
Don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you experience any problems with this or if you have any questions.
