Optimizing the impact of research publications in the era of open access and social media

27 Oct 2020, 13:00-15:30, Zoom

Online workshop hosted by the Department of Communication and Learning in Science. The workshop is also held November 23. 

Around 3 million scientific articles are published yearly in some 42,500 peer reviewed journals. This growth is exponential and raises questions of whether your research stands out from the crowd, attracts fellow scientists to read and cite, and is available to funders, evaluators, and potential collaborators in their searches so that it receives the credit it deserves. In the current era, open access and social networks play a vital role in making research visible to the world. These elements help researchers to be more visible and influential in their respective research field. Therefore, a well-thought-out publication strategy has become an essential tool for success.

This workshop will focus on factors in developing a publication strategy for an individual as well as a research group. The workshop is a combination of shorter lectures and hands-on exercises.

Target participants
This workshop is open for all the Faculty members and researchers affiliated with Chalmers University of Technology.
