Open Your Research
Have you ever wondered what you can do to help get the word out about your research? What can you do to make sure more people see what you publish? Here are 5 easy tips that can help increase the visibility of your research:
Publish in an open access journal - Open access journals allow you to retain the copyright to your articles that you author, and allow articles to be accessed by the public without a subscription or other fee. Use the Directory of Open Access Journals to find trusted open access journals in your field of study.
Deposit a copy of your research in an open access repository - “Unpaywall” your scholarly works and archive a draft of your research in Himmelfarb’s Health Sciences Research Commons. Check the SHERPA/RoMEO database for individual journal and publisher policies regarding self-archiving, or refer to the Author Agreement you signed during the publication process.
Share your publications with research management tools like ResearchGate, Mendeley, Slideshare for presentations, and Figshare for data. Make sure you comply with any copyright restrictions outlined in your author agreement!
