Boost your research impact

Some Strategies to Boost Your Research Impact are listed below:
  • Create your unique researcher identifier and profile under which you gather all your publications to facilitate their findings and enhance visibility in the research community, remove author ambiguity (due to variations in spellings), and ensure your work is correctly attributed to you. An example is the Open Researcher Contributor ID (ORCID).
  • Be consistent in writing your name, and your institutional and departmental address, and do not use abbreviations.
              List your email correctly and open it frequently.
              for more information, check:
            a- Blobaum's checklist for submission of scholarly manuscripts
            b- JANE: Journal/Author Name Estimator
            c- Publisher Evaluation Tool Checklist: From Nina Collins at Indiana Tech McMillen library
  • Create your profile in Google Scholar and preferably also create a professional web page and keep it up-to-date.
  • Join academic social networking sites such as AcademiaLinkedInResearchGateMendeleyPublons, etc.
  • Participate in a professional listserv in your specialized area.
  • Retain your right to place a copy of your publication at RED.
RED is a service of the University of South Dakota University Libraries that promotes and shares the scholarship, creative works, and data created by University of South Dakota faculty, students, and institutional partners.
  • Create your own website (you can use free resources for that like WordPress & Notion).
More on Notion, refer to the following article 'Michalak, R., & Rysavy, M. D. T. (2021). Building a #Nocode Academic Portfolio in Notion. Journal of Library Administration61(1), 86–113.'
