How to get started
Create a web presence
If you are working on a Research Project, it's a good idea to publish your work online. The University's default approach is to publish all research web content on the University primary website. More information about requesting web support and setting up a website, plus the process we legally must follow can be found on the Staff Directory. If you contact a member of the Web and Digital Media Team, or your Faculty Web and Promotions Assistant before creating anything they can help get you set up.
Update your academic staff profile through the RIS
Your staff profile is a window to the world on your activity. It is how PGR students find you and it is how the media find you too, as well as potential research collaborators. If your information is out of date here, then this is what the world sees. Maintaining your profile ensures you are projecting your work to the public at all times.
There is a range of support available on how to maintain your RIS profile - which feeds directly into your academic web profile too.
Work on your wider research profile
Introductory information on various online research profiles from Library and Cultural
