Paper Promotion

Publisher does it’s best to increase the visibility of the published papers. However, there are some key things where you as the author can help to promote the Journal and to maximize the impact of your published research significantly. 

Register for an ORCID iD, get an author identifier and include details of published papers to your profile. ORCID iD provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you as an author from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognised.

You may choose to deposit your paper's research data to community-recognised repositories where possible, or to general-science repositories if no community resource is available. By making your research data available you can help promote your published research, raise your profile by making your research more discoverable, and further encourage citations.
