Research Communication and Scholarly Impact

The OHSU Library hosts workshops to help students, early career researchers, and faculty understand and implement tools and strategies for sharing their work, measuring and communicating their scientific impact, and building a professional network. 

Workshop topics include writing an effective professional bio, using social media, high impact publishing, creating a personal professional website, and data sharing.  The workshops are free and open to all OHSU community members.

EndNote basics

EndNote or other library-led workshops are provided on a by-request basis.

If you are interested in having a librarian teach information management using EndNote or teach another topic, please Contact Us at the OHSU Library and indicate your name, email and the names of at least 3 other people you know who are interested in this training. The OHSU Library requires at least 4 people to sign up for a class. A librarian will contact you to set up a time and place convenient for you and your group.

The information management/EndNote class can be set up to be delivered within 60 minutes if your group just wants a brief overview, or within 90 minutes if your group wants some opportunity to work hands-on.

If your group has chosen to do a more hands-on focused session, participants will need to bring their laptops with EndNote already installed. See our instructions for How to Get EndNote

The information management/EndNote workshop covers the basics of information management using EndNote, a citation software used to manage citations in personal libraries and to create bibliographies based on a number of available journal or writing styles.
