Overview of Sharing Opportunities

Post on Your Institutional Repository

It is fundamental to the advancement of your research that it is accessible to those who need it. Both Open Access content and subscription-based content may be posted on your institutional repository.

To ensure your citation impact increases, that your field utilizes your research, and that your research is built upon in the future, you can also put us in direct contact with your institution’s librarian. We can help them explore tailored content solutions that include the full title that your publication appears in. Often, acquisitions librarians rely upon your expertise for recommendations of scholarly titles that will enhance the library’s collection. As the librarians lack experience in your specific topic area, you are the best individual to share the importance of your crucial research.

    • Here are some examples below:
      • In Telework and COVID Changes (Part 1 of 6), Dr. Brown discusses the changes COVID brought to telework, remote work, and remote life in general.
    • While the concept of teleworking has existed for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic drastically altered the operations of businesses and industries around the world. Through these shifts, there have been many challenges of adapting employees, business operations, productivity levels, technology, and more to meet this increased demand in teleworking. Through these challenges, not only were businesses forced to adapt, but a new wave of telework and its approach have been fostered.

    • I am Dr. Michael A. Brown Sr, President of Right Fit Communications, LLC. As COVID dramatically changed our world, it led me to analyze our world in terms of telework specifically and remote life in general. My intent was to discover all I could about the new ways in which we all balance family and work, and how we address trustworthiness, performance, and accountability issues. These considerations are necessary to understand the ways in which the world goes to work and to discuss the dynamic ways that people find to communicate with each other.

      I started by working with several colleagues to conduct research on the reasons for resistance to telework to shed light on how COVID has changed us. Qualitative interviews about telework and evaluations of employee engagement led me to discover ideas and actions that should prove helpful to organizations. A variety of issues or concerns are evident, including distractions, fatigue, accountability, communication, productivity, technology, coping, work hours, resources, and telework plans or the lack thereof.

      My new book, Analyzing Telework, Trustworthiness, and Performance Using Leader-Member Exchange: COVID-19 Perspective, is intended to help leaders reinforce what we know, discover what we do not know, and identify what we do not know, and identify what we should ask questions about. The discoveries we have made can assist those charged to work through positive and negative aspects of telework.

Guidelines for Recording:
  • Be sure to not have other noise in the background.
  • Speak clearly and concisely.
  • If you have earbuds with a microphone, use that and do not worry about talking directly into it as it should pick up normally.
  • Make sure you are properly lit (need to see your face) – not in a dark room or overly bright room.
  • Avoid windows for unwanted shadows on face.
  • Try to look into the camera as best you can.
  • Try to avoid moving and fidgeting if reading off a script or screen. (May use hand movements to help explain if that helps.)
  • Give yourself time at the beginning and end. (Don’t begin speaking immediately after recording, get situated first. As well as wait a second or two after finishing reading or speaking before ending the recording.)
  • Set the camera at eye level. (Not too low and not too high)
  • When recording make sure it is horizontal and not vertical.
  • Frame Yourself Appropriately.
  • Proper Framing should be as follows:
