Writing Accountability Groups (WAGs) are writing accountability groups, made up of your peers, to encourage a consistent writing routine. Groups usually consist of 4-8 people and meet over a 10-week period. WAGs have been known to increase writing frequency, time management, and organization. Visit Johns Hopkins WAGs site to learn more about these groups and get one started.
The WAG Toolkit includes videos, templates, and additional training resources to help you get started.
ORCID is an independent non-profit effort to provide an open registry of unique researcher identifiers and open services to link research activities and organizations to these identifiers. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers. Learn more at orcid.org.
Researchers can link their research with Johns Hopkins, which is a member institution. Note that in January, 2020, the NIH mandates that individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards submit their ORCID. Read more in the NIH's July 10, 2019 notice.
Johns Hopkins has an institution-wide subscription to RefWorks, which means that everyone has an account to use if they wish. If you are new to RefWorks, you will need to activate your account. To do so:
