    1. 1. Enhancing the Visibility and Impact of Your Research Karen E. Gutzman
    2. 2. Establish presence Enhance discovery Increase dissemination Tell your story
    3. 3. Establish a presence as an author – Use the same name variant consistently – Check your name in Scopus or PubMed Establish presence  Use one name
    4. 4. Establish a presence as an author – Use the same name variant consistently – Check your name in Scopus or PubMed Establish presence  Use one name
    5. 5. Register for ORCID iD – The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is an open source, non-profit, community-based effort to maintain a registry of unique identifiers numbers for authors/investigators. – ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier and a unique identifier number for authors/investigators. Used by: – Databases (Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science, etc.) – Publishing Platforms (ScholarONE) – Funding Agencies (NIH, CERN, etc. ) – and more… Two easy steps – Register for an ID: https://orcid.org/register – Automatically add publications to ORCID profile using Scopus or Web of Science Establish presence  Register for ORCID  Use one name
    6. 6. Complete Author Profiles – Researcher ID ( from Thomson Reuters) – Scopus author ID – ORCID – Google Scholar – Linked In Establish presence  Complete author profiles  Register for ORCID  Use one name
    7. 7. Confirm your affiliation Establish presence  Complete author profiles  Register for ORCID  Use one name  Confirm affiliation – Official name: – Variant names: Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Northwestern University Medical School Northwestern University (above) screenshot of search for AFFIL(Northwestern University ) in Elsevier’s Scopus database
    8. 8. Acknowledge your funding Enhance discovery Search Engine Optimization  Optimize for searching – Search Engine Optimization is the process of identifying factors which impact search engine accessibility – Consider publishing your works in journals index by PubMed Indexing increases discoverability PubMed is crawled by Google and Google Scholar – Consider the text of your title and abstract
    9. 9. Enhance discovery Well-constructed titles – Avoid punctuation marks : ; & / ? – Use a clear, descriptive title – Avoid humorous titles – Reiterate phrases or words from abstract – Use subject-specific acronyms – Search for words of your title in “controlled vocabularies” such as PubMed’s Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) Well-constructed titles  Optimize for searching through:
    10. 10. Abstacts Enhance discovery Robust Abstracts – Use Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms and natural language keywords – Repeat significant keywords or descriptive phrases at least three times – Include relevant unique identifiers or accession numbers linking to information on entities (genes, proteins, disease, etc.) or structures deposited in public databases  Well-constructed titles  Robust abstracts  Optimize for searching through:
    11. 11. Publication titles Enhance discovery Acknowledge Grant Funding – Allows for greater discoverability of works generated by grant support – Good practice for Responsible Conduct of Research – Required by funding agencies (above) screenshot of search for AFFIL(Northwestern University) AND FUND-SPONSOR (National Science Foundation) from Elsevier’s Scopus database  Acknowledge funding  Well-constructed titles  Robust abstracts  Optimize for searching through:
    12. 12. Follow Reporting Guidelines Enhance discovery Follow Reporting Guidelines  Follow reporting guidelines  Acknowledge funding  Well-constructed titles  Robust abstracts  Optimize for searching through: CONSORT Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials STROBE Strengthening the Reporting of Observational studies in Epidemiology PRISMA Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses STARD Standards for Reporting Studies of Diagnostic Accuracy COREQ Consolidated criteria for reporting Qualitative Research ENTREQ Enhancing transparency in reporting the synthesis of qualitative research SQUIRE Publication guidelines for quality improvement in health care CHEERS Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards CARE Consensus-based Clinical Case Reporting Guidelines Development SAMPL Basic Statistical Reporting for Articles Published in Biomedical Journals – Equator network maintains a library for health research reporting (above) List of reporting guidelines from http://www.equator-network.org/
    13. 13. Get your work out there • Present and particpateParticipate Increase Dissemination Present – Join professional organizations – Participate in committees – Volunteer for conference activities – Teach CE courses – Serve as a reviewer for a journal – Serve on IRBs – Build relationships with policy-makers and grant funding officials – Professional conferences – Meetings – Department seminars – Journal clubs – Outreach events for the general public Increase dissemination  Be active: participate, present, and share
    14. 14. Get your work out there • Present and particpate Share Increase Dissemination – Submit manuscript to institutional repository Save your final, peer-reviewed manuscript – Deposit research data in appropriate repository – Other options for sharing include: Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net Figshare: http://www.figshare.com Dryad: http://datadryad.org Increase dissemination  Be active: participate, present, and share
    15. 15.

    16. 16. Get your work out there • Present and particpate Share Increase Dissemination – Consider writing about your research in a trade publication to reach: Clinicians Consumers Policy-makers Industry Increase dissemination  Be active: participate, present, and share
    17. 17. Trade Publications Increase dissemination  Be active: participate, present, and share  Consider Open Access Consider Open Access – Open access (OA) publications are: free to readers do not have as many copyright restrictions on their use as traditional publications – OA publications generally: receive higher visibility generate more citations allow authors to retain copyrights Resources: Northwestern Open Access Fund http://libguides.northwestern.edu/oafund Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) http://www.joaj.org/
    18. 18. – Academic authors have various tools to negotiate with publishers to retain the rights they may need after their work is published – Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) Provosts have approved a copyright addendum http://www.cic.net/projects/library/scholarly- communication/introduction Consider Copyright Increase dissemination  Be active: participate, present, and share  Consider Open Access  Consider Copyright – Creative Commons licenses allow a creator to simply identify the types of uses that are allowed and those that are prohibited. http://creativecommons.org/
