# Networks

Below are a few links to my more commonly used social network profiles and Internet habitats, along with a few comments. I am pretty consistently found under the user handle cboettig on social networks, though no guarantees.

## Actively Using

• -- The web-based home of my research. Star, watch, or fork a project you're interested in.
• -- My primary social network, which is why it gets a contact link in my footer.
• -- Profile includes links to other stackexchange platforms I use.
• If anything should be the canonical reference network, it would be ORCID. My publication list, current position, and funding should be relatively up-to-date there.

## (Somewhat) maintained profiles

There are far too many academic profiles that want to portray a researcher's publications etc. Many have an automated or semi-automated discovery algorithm to add new works, with interesting results. My website vita is probably the best reference.

• -- Figshare is a convenient archive of other scholarly outputs, including grant applications, theses, etc; though I use Dryad (data associated with pubs in Dryad-integrated journals), KNB (richer metadata) and Zenodo (mostly for Github-integration with software) as well. Note that the latter don't have the same concept of user profiles and network and thus aren't listed separately here.
• Does a nice job drawing in data from other sites such as ORCID, rather than implementing yet another web crawler that needs babysitting. It also provides relatively transparent metrics such as Scopus citations, instead of whatever Google's bot thinks is a citation. Unlike almost all other profiles, it does nice job providing and distinguishing between categories such as data, software, and publications, and allows a user to directly connect open access preprints to subscription journal articles.
