Service description

Provides customized assistance with digital content development to highlight research efforts, strategies for disseminating research online, selecting the most suitable digital platforms, and research impact outcome measurement.

Today more than ever, researchers have to make their publications and other research outputs such as datasets, software code, images, stand out from the stack of published work. They need to deliver and communicate their results to a variety of different stakeholders, such as their colleagues, funding agencies, politicians, the media, and the public. Additionally, funders place greater emphasis of dissemination efforts beyond presentations at scientific meetings. This service helps researchers to achieve that aiming for broad reach while taking into account citation and digital copyright practices and issues.
