Research Profile Development Workshop for Graduate Students, March 12th

Do you want to enhance your online research profile? Are you planning to apply for a research grant or a job, or want to be ready when you do?

Then Register for the Research Profile Development Workshop for Graduate Students March 12th, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. in SLC 508.

Research profile development is an important part of modern scholarship, for applying to jobs and grants as well as submitting papers for publication. Online profiles can aid in mobilizing your research and accomplishments so others can easily find them.

  • Guest speaker Philip Mai from the Social Media Lab will discuss the importance of online research profiles.
  • Learn how to populate both your research ID using ORCID and an online research profile using Google Scholar in a hands-on workshop with Toronto Metropolitan University librarians (bring your laptop).

This lunch and learn session, specifically for graduate students, is brought to you by the Toronto Metropolitan University Library in partnership with the Yeates School of Graduate Studies.

Ryerson graduate students from all disciplines are invited to attend. This series qualifies for Future Smart, so bring your passport to be signed.

A light lunch will be served. Space is limited, so register early! Please bring your laptop and be prepared to work on your profile.

Please contact if you require any accessibility or dietary accommodations to ensure your inclusion in this event.
