# Background In this scenario each of you are a well established researcher of some renown in your field who has been notified that they will be receiving an award at an upcoming conference. In preparation, you are putting together a collection of research highlights from your career. You want to use OSF for that so that you can link directly to the portions of a study where you made the most direct contribution to the field while still enabling researchers to access the full studies. Each of you should follow the instructions for Researcher A below. (Dates are added to the titles of the accompanying projects in order to better emulate materials that predate the existence of OSF, or indeed figshare, Dataverse, Google, Wikipedia, AWS, etc.) # Instructions Each of you should follow the instructions for "Researcher A" below. ### Researcher A Your career has been notable for contributing to the field both in terms of advancing theoretical understanding and through the creation of data, materials, and analysis tools that have become instrumental to work in your discipline. As you pull together a career retrospective you want to highlight the portions of each project that you are now best known for contributing. For citation purposes in these studies you are represented by the "YourName" researcher. * Look through the [five Career Highlight source projects]( * For each project, identify whether you should link the whole project or just a select component from it to your career retrospective. (Citation order for "YourName" can help with this determination) * If you choose to include a whole project in your retrospective, link it into the "Papers" component inside the "Case 3: Career Retrospective" of your Personal Reference Project. * If you choose to include just a particular section from a project, link it into the "Data, Material, and Analysis" component inside the "Case 3: Career Retrospective" of your Personal Reference Project. * As you look through the projects, keep an eye out for any materials from your previous work that may no longer be accessible or may prove challenging to reuse. We will discuss these issues next. ## Exercise Map This exercise is the one highlighted in red under the public "Case Studies" project. You will be connecting the materials you create to the other red component, which is located in your own private Personal Reference Project (the structure highlighted in blue) ![Exercise Map for Case Study 3][1] [1]:
