Strategies to Enhance Research Visibility, Impact & Citations

Ale Ebrahim, Nader

Do you know “Over 43% of ISI papers have never ever received any citations?” (, 2014). Now it’s time to start spreading the word around your findings and analysis. Publishing a high quality paper in scientific journals is only halfway towards receiving citation in the future. The rest of the journey is dependent on disseminating the publications via using the proper “Research Tools”. Proper utilization of the tools allows the researchers to increase the research impact and citations for their publications. This workshop will provide you various techniques on how you can increase the visibility and hence the impact of your research work.
