Scholarly Publishing: Increase the Visibility of Your Research

A guide to scholarly publishing and scholarly communication activities at Himmelfarb Library.


There are a number of ways you can increase the visibility of your research and to publicize your scholarship. 

  • Archive your research in an open access repository
  • Consider publishing in an open access journal
  • Develop your online identity using ORCID, LinkedIn, and/or ResearcherID. Ensure your faculty profiles in GW Expert Finder and departmental webpages are up to date, and contain links to your works. 
  • Share publications with research management tools like Mendeley, ResearchGate, CiteULike, Slideshare, and others
    • **Before you post research on Mendeley and other research-sharing sites, you need to ensure that you have copyright permission to post the material. See Mendeley's Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy for more information.**
  • Link your research on a personal website to make it discoverable by Google Scholar and other search engines.
  • Include keywords and abstracts when linking your article to ensure that your article can be easily discovered.
