CPUT Open Access Card: how visible and accessible is your research?
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Whilst working towards open science strategies and trying to beat the cost in Open Access publishing, researchers worldwide are embracing a variety of activities and tools to promote their work, connect with other researchers, and engage in scholarly discourse.
There’s various ways to enhance
and promote visibility, access and impact of CPUT
research outputs. In line with this year’s theme “Open
for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge” CPUT Libraries support researchers in
many ways such as adding research publications and connecting accounts through
these researchers profile systems:
ü Getting unique author identifiers using ORCID to distinguish their work from that of all other researchers. Authors can add all of their research publications on ORCID
ü Check journal publisher copyright and self-archiving policies
ü Disseminate or share outputs through CPUT institutional repository and
ü Share research data through CPUT Research Data Repository Figshare
ü Create Google Scholar account
ü Create a Mendeley profile and other forms of social networking tools
In responding to the
Open Access movement this Open Access card is designed to promote CPUT research
visibility and impact. Researchers can download and click in each platform to create
accounts and add publications.
