Scholarly Impact 5-Day Challenge

This guide will help you get started in improving your online scholarly impact so that your work will reach a wider audience


The Scholarly Impact
5-Day Challenge is your chance to improve the discoverability of your research and yourself in the academic online community.

The easier your colleagues can find your work and you, the more likely you are to be cited and read. We encourage you to engage in the activities described on each page of this guide, and don't hesitate to contact us or your subject librarian if you have any questions! Another great resource that's inspired us and many other librarians who have engaged in similar outreach efforts is The 30-Day Impact Challenge: The Ultimate Guide to Raising the Profile of Your Research* by Stacy Konkiel, a leading thinker and researcher in the burgeoning fields of altmetrics and open science. 

This event was organized by Jody Bailey, Jennifer Doty, Jennifer Elder, Melanie Kowalski, and Kimberly Powell
