Description

National 2016 Conference, 29 August-2 September 2016 Adelaide: Engage Create Lead.
 
This conference presentation (PowerPoint slides) supports the paper which discusses two highly customised, and individualised, research support initiatives:
 
The Pimp my Profile initiative and the Researcher Profile Health Check Service. Both initiatives are very practical; Pimp my Profile takes researchers through a three step guide to creating a researcher profile (based on achieving Bronze, Silver and Gold levels); the Researcher Profile Health Check provides individualised feedback and practical suggestions on how researchers can maximise their online identity and visibility. In both cases researchers do something, and get something at the end. Both are also mechanisms through which emerging researchers were prioritised by the Faculty for targeted support by the CI Library Team. The CIF Research Leaders are further operationalising the Researcher Profile through the university’s mandatory Performance Planning and Review (PPr) process.
 
Both initiatives were developed and implemented in October 2015. Evidence of impact will be gathered via a focus group and a survey in the third quarter of 2016. This evaluation will focus on gathering researchers’ perceptions of the initiatives, as well as attempting to identify positive change over the course of the year, in the visibility of and activity around those researchers who developed their online researcher identity according to the Create Your Researcher Profile guide.
