Abstract

This poster presents the initial findings of an approach used to analyze a faculty member's direct and relevant indirect networks in order to develop connections with academic peers of similar research interests to expand the visibility and awareness of the faculty member's research through the use of an online collaborative group. It is anticipated that by developing this group, where sharing of publications and ideas is promoted, that the faculty member will increase their virtual research footprint through the awareness and referencing of their publications.
