Today, it’s yours: the way to showcase your research online.
You’re proud of your research. You want people to read your papers, download your slide decks, and talk about your datasets. You want to learn when they do, and you want to make it easy for others to learn about it too, so everyone can understand your impact. We know, because as scientists, that’s how we feel, too.
The new Impactstory design is built around researchers. You and your research are at the center: you decide how you want to tell the story of your research impact.
What does that mean? Here’s a sampling of what’s new in today’s release:
A streamlined front page showcases Selected Publications and Key Metrics that you select and arrange from your full list of publications. There’s a spot for a bio so people learn about your research passion and approach.
Reading your research has become an easy and natural part of learning about your work: your publications are directly embedded on the site! Everyone can read as they browse your profile. We automatically embed all the free online versions we can find — uploading everything else only takes a few clicks.
None of this is any good if your publication list gets stale, so keeping your publication list current is easier than ever: zoom an email firstname.lastname@example.org whenever you publish something new with a link to the new publication, and poof: it’ll appear in your profile, just like that.
Want to learn things you didn’t know before? Your papers now include Twitter Impressions — the number of times your publication has been mentioned in someone’s twitter timeline. You may be surprised how much exposure your research has had…we’re discovering many articles reaching tens of thousands of potential readers.
We could talk about the dozens of other features in this release. But instead: go check out your new profile. Make it yours. We’re extending the free trial for all users for two more days — subscribe before your trial expires and it is just $45/year.
As of today, the three of us have taken down our old-fashioned academic websites. Impactstory is our online research home, and we’re glad it’ll be yours too.
