CityU Scholars - Training Workshops and Consultation Sessions

CityU Scholars is the University’s Integrated Research Information System where faculty members and research students maintain their public researcher profiles and update their publication lists as well as other achievement information. The public researcher profiles facing the global audience will help enhance visibility and attract collaboration opportunities. Records in the System will be used by the University for reporting (e.g. RGC reporting), performance review (e.g. annual appraisal) and benchmarking purposes. It is therefore important that our researchers learn how to manage their CityU Scholars accounts.

The Library is pleased to offer the CityU Scholars Training Workshops and Consultation Sessions at the start of the new academic year. New faculty members and research students, newly appointed Departmental Administrators for Research Information Management, or those who would like to refresh their knowledge on CityU Scholars are welcome to attend.
