The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at AUK embarked on a collaborative initiative with Dartmouth College to conduct a workshop presented by Professor Emeritus Jon Anderson on the ways in which research papers can gain visibility in the academic community.

The workshop, titled “Getting Your Research Noticed: From Keeping Track to Keeping Score in Academic Publishing,” had Professor Emeritus Jon Anderson as its main speaker. Dr. Anderson’s areas of expertise include social and cultural anthropology, contemporary Middle East, information technology cultures and globalization and civil society.

Attended by AUK faculty members, multiple topics were discussed throughout Dr. Anderson’s presentation, such as the various databases available in which research papers can be published and their exclusive differences, the circulation of findings, the importance of reference librarians, and the planning of publication strategies. Emphasis was also put on how different disciplines have different sequences of publication and a comprehensive review on directories and indexes was also provided.

Of equal importance, conversations revolving around open access publishing, copyright laws, institutional repositories, conferences and journal articles were exchanged in this workshop.

The presentation provided by Dr. Anderson combined with thought-provoking discussions from AUK faculty members and professors from different parts of the world provided valuable and fresh perspectives for audience members seeking to increase their research’s noticeability in the future.
