Enhancing Research Impact


With the huge increase in publications in all fields, it becomes increasingly difficult to gain attention for your work.

The first part of this guide concerns decisions you make before you publish that might enhance your research impact.

The second part addresses how to promote your work after you publish, plus track its impact.

NOTE: If you are working on a dissertation or thesis, see Dissertation and Thesis Writing.

Contact your subject librarian for more information, including subject-specific information about how to enhance your research impact.
