Reputation management is the act of shaping the perception of your work by managing the messages that describe your work. Controlling your message can help you demonstrate impact in the academic landscape by showcasing your research in a orderly manner.
Many scholarly reputation sites also provide metrics. Please note that these metrics are reflective of the scope of the site and in many cases do not fully indicate the impacts of all of your scholarly production.
This advisory service is available without charge to U of A postdocs and graduate students as well as all faculty, regardless of discipline, status, or rank.
The Basic Package – Publishing Books and Journal Articles
The Enhanced Package – Building a Professional Reputation
Create a flexible, personalized strategic plan for building a professional reputation. This service includes the basic package but the scope expands beyond immediate project to long-term goals.
