Curating: A Critical Task for Authors

In today’s crowded and competitive academic environment, it is critical that authors take the steps to “curate” themselves.  Curate is based on the Latin word cura, loosely translated as “care.” 

Establishing a name and identity is a key step to linking research activities and outputs to the same person to allow for promotion of research. Curating is done by taking the steps to ensure that author profiles, whether in bibliographic databases, public (social or academic) platforms, or name authority resources are current and correct. 

See Establishing Your Author Name for more guidance:

* Please note: Becker Briefs pages may contain links, email addresses or information about resources which are no longer current.
