The Libraries Research Impact Challenge returns with our second challenge, Oct. 3-7, to help UNLV faculty, staff, and graduate students improve the impact of your research, locate useful metrics, and find potential collaborators for future research.
Completing each daily task is optional - you can complete one day’s challenge, a few days, or complete them all. This year, there are also daily events (such as workshops) and bonus challenges tied to each challenge. Attendance at these events or completion of a bonus challenge is optional, and is not required to complete a challenge. Once you’ve completed that day’s challenge, fill out the challenge completion form to let us know you’ve participated.
Participants will be entered to win a prize package, which includes University Libraries’ swag, ORCID swag, your scholarship featured on the Digital Scholarship@UNLV home page, and your scholarship showcased on University Libraries’ social media. The winner will also be announced in UNLV Today. Each day you register your participation, your name is entered to win the prize package and increases your chances of winning.
These daily challenges will help you to:
- Curate your online presence
- Make your scholarly works more discoverable and accessible
- Leverage the tools and services available through the University Libraries to tell your research’s story and demonstrate its impact
- Track citations and other mentions of your scholarship
