Dissemination and publication / Publication


Be seen and be read. About the use of social media, researcher profiles, search engine optimisation, and more.


When you write

Start to think about visibility already in the writing process by:

  1. Making sure that search engines capture your article through the conscious use of key terms in the title and summary
  2. Being consistent with how you list names; always use the same syntax. (For particularly common surnames you should include the initials of any middle names).
  3. Use captions on the pictures.

Researcher profiles

When research activities take place across multiple sources, it can be a challenge to organise and separate your work from that of others. The solution?

  • Create researcher profiles 
    • Update you profile in Cristin.
    • ORCID (to be integrated into Cristin) provides a constant digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers and supports automated links between you and your research activity. Include your ID on web pages and script submissions.
    • ResearcherID (Web of Science) By using the MyResearcherID feature in Web of Science, researchers are assigned an individual ID number that remains connected to them regardless of institutional association. Once the MyResearcherID is created, your publications, which are listed in Web of Science, will be added to your profile. To be merged with ORCID.
    • Scopus Author ID distinguishes between similar names by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number, and by grouping all the documents written by the author.
    • Google Scholar Citation profil: Google Scholar makes it easy to group all citations related to your publications in one place. A profile contains names, selected keywords, research interest and generated citation summaries including links to quoting articles.
    • LinkedIn
