Strategic publishing

Strategic publishing involves questions of where and how to publish to get cited, while also making your research freely available to everyone.

Chalmers Open Access policy means that Chalmers, along with a growing number of universities and funding agencies, requires researchers to make their publications freely available to everyone. But, at the same time, it is important for researchers to publish in journals of high standing.

In our guide Be Visible! (pdf), the library gives advice on how to publish for increased visibility and impact. The guide also summarizes Chalmers goals and policies for scholarly publishing. Note that the related Guide to journal selection has been discontinued, but that information on journal quality indicators and publishers can be found at:
