Public Outreach, with a Dash of Self-Promotion

As federally funded PIs can now link to their faculty pages or lab Web sites at their National Institutes of Health RePORTER records, the agency's Office of Extramural Research urges those who do to return the favor. At the Extramural Nexus blog, OER urges NIH-funded PIs to link back to the RePORT system and says that, as it "is searched by thousands of users every day, links to your faculty page, professional profile, biosketch, and/or lab Web site will allow others to learn more about you and your research.” OER adds that it will unveil additional RePORT features in coming weeks.
