The Top Hit: How a research report on “Evaluating Information” became the SDR’s most visited item

October 22, 2020

When the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) set out in January 2015 to research the ability of students to judge the credibility of online information, they could never have predicted that their results would be disseminated precisely at a time when the level of public concern over the availability, spread, and impact of misinformation online was sky high.

ORCID : Important tool for your professional career

October 21, 2020
by Grace Baysinger

Having an ORCID ID enables you to distinguish yourself from others who may have the same name.  An ORCID ID is a persistent identifier that supports your efforts when you change positions, institutions, or even your hame.  Your ORCID record enables you to enter information once for reuse multiple times.  Because ORCID.org is a non-profit organization, your information is not sold.  There is no cost for using ORCID and you control the visibility of your ORCID record.  Automatic updates for your new publications can be sent to your ORCID record, making it easier to keep your information current.
