Publication Strategies in the Academic "Publish or Perish" Competition

It is essential for a career in academia to publish research results in relevant scientific journals and to make others aware of one’s research. This workshop offers insight into

  • The basics, history and application of bibliometrics
  • The benefits for researchers
  • Citation analysis in the academic evaluation
  • Data sources: WoS, Scopus, Google Scholar, etc.
  • Bibliometric indicators: definitions and limits.
  • On the basis of which indicators is scientific output measured?
  • How can the visibility of the own publication be enhanced?
  • Identification of networks to develop cooperation strategies.
  • Mapping Science: visualization of the development of research areas and their “research fronts”

Aims:

  • Insight into this new discipline
  • “Empowerment” of researchers
  • Better interconnectedness of researchers

You will learn how to present yourself optimally within the community of your own institution as well as to the international scientific community. At the same time you will gain insights as to how you are evaluated internationally.

 Please note:

Participation is subject to the successfully passed public presentation of your dissertation project.
