ResearchGate & Academia: Networks for Researchers to Improve Research Impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Researchers needs to remove many traditional obstacles to reach the general public. Academic social networking allows you to connect with other researchers in your field, share your publications, and get feedback on your non-peer-reviewed work. It gives you another place to establish your name and research and perhaps even collaborate with others. The academic social networking, making your work more widely discoverable and easily available. The two best known academic social networking are ResearchGate and...

Journal selection procedure: Select the best journal to ensure the highest citation

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...

Publish online magazine to promote publications and research findings

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 can be one solution through content curation to immediately circulate the research findings. Content curation is not just sharing all kinds of content you stumble upon or source. It’s most of all about doing it in a smart and audience-centric way, by focusing on specific topics you want to curate...

Contribute to Wikipedia: An approach to Increase Research Visibility on the Web

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Wikipedia is a tool for collaboration, information sharing and knowledge/content management which anyone can edit. Wikipedia is widely used by students during the research process. So, due to Wikipedia popularity, contributing to Wikipedia website is one way of increasing citation score. In this workshop, I try to answer “Does including your papers as citations on Wikipedia increase the number of academic citations you get?” if yes, how?.

Digital Object Identifier (DOI): Introduction and Applications

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is used for identifying intellectual property in the digital environment. The DOI is like a digital fingerprint: Each article receives a unique one at birth, and it can be used to identify the article throughout its lifespan, no matter where it goes. A DOI should be interpreted as 'digital identifier of an object' rather than 'identifier of a digital object'. A DOI can be assigned to any Object. In this...

Citations and its Impact to University Ranking

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Higher education is increasingly becoming a global business. The main factor to distinguish between different universities is university ranking. There are numerous university ranking systems that include a number of citations as one of the measuring indicators. The citations may come from high quality research and publications. However, publishing a high quality paper in scientific journals is only halfway towards receiving citation in the future. The rest of the journey is dependent on disseminating the...

Prepare a Pre-Print, Post-Print of Your Document for Wider Visibility and Increase Citation

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...

Create a publication database for enhancing research visibility

Nader Ale Ebrahim
In a competitive research landscape, researchers can no longer afford to just publish and hope for receiving impact. To leave a mark, researchers have to take their impact into their own hands. Researchers need to keep all of their scholarly output in a database, to share through academic social networking sites. Researchers also, should create a "permalink" for each of their publications. A "permalink" is a stable, permanent (or persistent) link to an online journal...

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.
