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...

Analysis of Bibliometrics information for selecting the best field of study

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 tools for understanding trends for making decisions. We need tools for analysis of Bibliometrics information for select the best field of study with promising enough attention. This presentation will provide tools to discover the new trends in...

Impact of Article Page Count and Number of Authors on Citations in Disability Related Fields: A Systematic Review Article

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Background: Citation metrics and total publications in a field has become the gold standard for rating researchers and viability of a field. Hence, stimulating demand for citation has led to a search for useful strategies to improve performance metric index. Meanwhile, title, abstract and morphologic qualities of the articles attract researchers to scientific publications. Yet, there is relatively little understanding of the citation trend in disability related fields. We aimed to provide an insight into...

New systems for measuring research impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
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 metrics proposed as alternatives to Impact Factor for journals and personal citation indexes like h-index.  Altmetrics attempts to use...

How to select a brand name for your research interest?

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Selecting a research “brand name” 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 of the 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 and abstracting of the paper depends on the accuracy of...

Optimize articles for search engine to improve research visibility

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The number of citations a paper receives helps to determine the impact of your research. Even if your research is excellent, if no one finds your paper, it won’t be cited. Similar to a company for marketing a retail product, Academic Search Engine Optimization (ASEO) of your journal papers is important to market your research findings. ASEO is almost obligatory if you would like to increase readership of your papers, increase citations and acknowledgment and...

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.

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.
