Research impact & dissemination

These researcher development opportunities focus on ensuring your research has an impact, describing that impact well, and disseminating your research in the most impactful ways. From measuring your research impact to impactful use of social media, this section covers a broad range of researcher development topics.

Researcher development sessions

Within this development category we run sessions and programs throughout the year focusing on:

  • publishing including where to publish, publishing smarter and techniques for increased citations
  • research impact including which metrics you need to worry about and how they inform the bigger picture
  • presenting your work including at conferences and on social media.

For more information about scheduled sessions (including how to register) see the Researcher Development Program calendar .
