Increase Your Scholarly Impact

A self-service guide to help you increase your scholarly impact, provided by the Libraries' Scholarly Impact Service (SIS).

Getting Started

Scholarly Impact Cycle

Increasing your scholarly impact is an iterative process that starts with building your scholarly identity. The tabs on the left are designed to walk you through the process step-by-step for a self-service experience. You'll find tutorials, templates, and more to help you build the story about your scholarship at the University of North Texas.

The Libraries' Scholarly Impact Service (SIS) team is here to consult with you on any step of this self-service guide.  Below is a consultation checklist that can help you get started. Please look it over, answer some of the questions to narrow down the topics you might want to discuss, and then contact the team.

See the rest of this webpage for the SIS team's contact information and details about the services we offer. 

If you are a UNT faculty member or graduate student, you may also want to familiarize yourself with the Tenure & Promotion Policies for your particular department.
