Your Research Report, whether in print or online, can be discovered by users around the world. Users can search for reports from the Western Sydney University Library catalogue, or from search engines such as Google and Google Scholar. All records about Research Reports are held in university library catalogues and digital repositories are also made available via Trove, the National Library of Australia's database.

These search engines provide results based on the metadata associated with your Research Report: author, title, keywords. Some publishers provide tips for authors on how to optimise metadata for search engine discoverability. Wiley's Author Services site is one example.

If you are pursuing an academic career, the discoverability of your work is important. It is also important that your work is attributed correctly to you.

• Register with ORCID to ensure your publications are attributed correctly to you.
• Manage your researcher profile by obtaining other appropriate researcher identifiers for citation databases

Track usage of your Research Report on ResearchDirect.
