Online Repository: Extending Research Visibility, Readership, and Impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Depositing papers in Open Access repositories will increase the visibility, readership, impact, and citation of the article, due to removing barriers to knowledge sharing. It's highly recommended that documents without DOIs to be deposited in the repository that offer DOIs for documents you have deposited. There are several different types of repository that can host your research outputs depending upon your discipline. I will dig into some of them in this workshop.

Where to publish? A Journal selection procedure for receiving the highest citation and impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Publication in a peer-reviewed journal is the obvious goal of most researchers to reach others in the field, advancing knowledge and encouraging communication between groups with similar research interest. One of the most important and possibly the least well understood aspects of the publication process is the choice of a suitable journal that is likely to improve your research visibility and impact. For instance, publishing your article in an Open Access journal means that more...

Essential steps to write a Bibliometric paper

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Bibliometrics can be defined as the statistical analysis of publications. Bibliometrics has focused on the quantitative analysis of citations and citation counts which is complex. It is so complex and specialized that personal knowledge and experience are insufficient for understanding trends and then making decisions. We need tools for analysis of bibliometrics information to recognize the research trends and evaluate scientific/institution/country’s research productivity.  This presentation will provide procedure to write a Bibliometrics paper.

Improving Research Visibility Part 5: Blogging and Online Magazines

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The long run research findings will be disseminated through publications. However, researchers may have created some local content which should be circulated immediately. Online magazines and blogs can be solutions through content curation to immediately circulate the research findings. Academic blogs help researchers to establish expertise, forge new intellectual bonds in their discipline, and give them a place to test out new ideas and promote their research. Blog services provide your research seen by more...

Improving Research Visibility Part 7: Measuring Research Impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Measuring research impact by utilizing different metrics, help you to see the bigger picture of your research publications influences. The reach of a publication can no longer be judged exclusively by the number of times it is cited. Because, we are now in the digital and sharing information age, academic conversations are as likely to be found on various academic social networks. So, we need new tools to measure the research impact. Altmetrics are new...

Selection of brand name, area of expertise and best suited keywords

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Selecting a research “brand name”, “area of expertise”,  and “the best suited keyword sets” is one of the most important decisions that a researcher will need to make. The research brand name should appear in the title, abstract and  keywords’ part of a paper. The title is extremely important and must be chosen with great care, as it will be read by thousands, whereas few will read the entire paper. On the other hand, indexing...

The Rise of “Trade Liberalization”: A Bibliometric Analysis of Trade Liberalization Study

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The purpose of this research is to assess the universal scientific trends and examine the patterns in the intellectual research published on trade liberalization over a period of 35 years (1980-2015). The data were collected from a leading indexing and abstracting database Thomson Reuters Web of Science. The Kruskal-Walis test, ANOVA and Pearson’s correlation were employed in analyzing the retrieved data. Based on the citation trend of first 100 highly cited published articles with the...

Research Tools for Research Cycle: From SEARCH to DISSEMINATION

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With the increasing usage of information and communications technology (ICT), researchers are able to use computer software/tools to find, organize, manipulate, analyze, and share relevant information. However, there are hundreds of such tools to select from, for various research-related uses. I have collected over 700 “Research Tools” that can help researchers do their work efficiently. “Research Tools” consists of a hierarchical set of nodes. It has four main nodes: (1) Searching the literature, (2) Writing...

Copyright Checking and Pre-print / Post-print Preparations

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With overwhelming thousands of online journals daily, many scholarly articles simply never reach their intended audience and consequently fail to generate the impact they deserve. Traditionally, scholarly publishers ensured the visibility of an authors’ work by circulating print journals to targeted readers. But fewer people are reading print journals anymore and as content continues to migrate from print to online — how can researchers optimize electronic distribution of content? This presentation, lead you to prepare...
