Back by popular demand! The Research Impact Challenge is a professional development opportunity to help researchers better understand and manage their online scholarly presence, as well as consider ways to describe the impact and reach of their work.
Each day for five days during Maine IMPACT Week, participants will receive an email with a suggested task designed to build and curate one’s scholarly profile, measure the impact of one’s research, and/or promote one’s work to reach new audiences.
Activities vary, but typically take anywhere from 5-30 minutes, and can be completed on any internet-enabled device.
These daily “challenges” are designed for researchers to accomplish over the course of one week. However, each activity stands alone and can be completed separately from the others and at a time that is convenient for participants. Throughout the week, participants will also receive tips for staying on top of publishing trends that may benefit their scholarship. All are welcome to participate – the activities may be especially resonant for graduate students and early career scholars.
