Abstract: You have perfected your knife skills, experimented and created dishes, built skills at culinary school, now how can you distinguish yourself among the other chefs? Just as you wouldn’t use a meat cleaver to slice tomatoes, using the proper tools to shape your scholarly identity is just as crucial. Not only do you want your publications to stand out, but establishing a unique identity creates metrics enabling you to get feedback and interact with your diners (readers)! This recipe shows your readers the importance of establishing their own online scholarly identity and walksthem through three of the major tools for this process.
