Enago presents this interactive online session for research scholars in collaboration with The Electrochemical Society. The speakers share practical and effective tips on increasing research article citations and making a significant impact.

In today’s academic publishing landscape, it is as important for researchers to promote their research, as it is to publish it in a noteworthy journal. The number of citations a work receives indicates its impact on the field. An increase in the citation count undoubtedly has a positive impact on a researcher’s career. When making tenure and grant decisions, universities and funding agencies often look at the number of publications and the citation count jointly. To maximize their journals’ reach, it is important for editors to boost citations of the articles they publish.

Benefits of attending the webinar

Through this session, researchers have an improved understanding of the following:

  • Importance of acknowledging sources in the manuscript
  • Comprehending the significance of research promotion
  • Awareness of various strategies to boost citations
  • Effective use of academic and social media networks for endorsing an article
  • Measuring the impact of the applied promotion strategy
