  18. 18. Suggestions for enhancing the digital footprints of Indian Researchers and Universities• Developing institutional repositories (example : ePrints@IISc)• Depositing pre-print/post-print versions in central open access repositories such as arXiv, CogPrints, E-LIS, etc.,• Publishing research papers in Open Access Journals• Publish research results in journals indexed by major citation databases (WoS, Scopus, and Google Scholar, etc.,)• Publishing articles in journals which have both print and online versions.• Upload classroom teaching materials online (Slideshare/YouTube)• Maintaining individual websites.• Sharing research results in social media (Blogs/Facebook/Twitter, etc.,).• Maintaining researchers “impact file” along with CV (example: Google Scholar My Citations/WoS ResearcherID).
