How can you best communicate your research in a digital landscape?

Digital methods within research have vastly expanded the possibilities and opportunities for communicating research publications and also the ways in which works can be linked together and cited. These methods also have the potential to save time on administration and make research publications and outputs discoverable to a wider audience.

This workshop will provide an overview of ways in which historians can build and manage an online profile as a researcher, using tools such as ORCID IDs. It will also cover best practice and methods of citing digital resources so your work is connected and discoverable to others.

The afternoon will also provide the opportunity to share experiences with other researchers about successes and challenges in working with digital resources and hear from journal editors about their work and how they cite digital objects. The workshop is primarily aimed at early career historians but other humanities researchers are also welcome. Topics discussed during the workshop:

  • Persistent identifiers for authors and contributors
  • Citation of digital resources
  • Best practices for citations: where to start?
  • Hands-on session with fellow humanities researchers
