Increasing Citations: Creation, Curation and Community

We recently ran a session on increasing citations with members of the Open Space Research Centre in Social Sciences.  We covered a lot of material in a 2 hour workshop and are very grateful to the participants for their questions and positive comments.  The session covered:

  • Getting your research output found – including tips on Search Engine Optimisation
  • Getting your research read – surveying tips on making your research more readable
  • Tips on where to publish – including Open Access Publishing
  • Curating your research using author profile systems e.g. ResearchGate & Academia.edu
  • Sharing your research using social media
  • Bibliometrics and altmetrics – what they are, how to use them and what their pros and cons are

Slides are available here: Increasing citations Presentation

A lists of resources: Increasing citations Reading List

Thanks to all who attended and if you are interested in us running the session for your Department or Research Group let us know.
