Publications

Swedish OA Workshop

KTH, Stockholm, April 12, 2007

1. Set up an IPR Dossier

with one entry for each

publication you have


2. Create a Persistent URL

for each publication


2. Create a Persistent URL

for each publication

• It should be a static URL (no ? or &)

• Contents: Bibliographic metadata and…

• Publisher on-line version

• Your own on-line version, if you can

• Raw data, information about experiments

• Project information

• Citation list, with links


3. ’Market’ this URL

• Arrange link from project websites, etc in

your ’institution’

• Arrange link from publisher website, if they

provide this

• Send emails to authors of cited articles,

mention you have quoted them, invite

them to cite your URL

• Cross-link

between your own article pages

• Keep it alive: add more information later


4. Make sure this URL is persistent

• Implement it statically – PHP & Co can not be

relied on for long periods of time

• Also, static looking URL:s are more likely to be

cited and linked

• Put it in a place where it will be allowed to stay.

On your university’s website? Yes- if they allow it

to stay when you have left

• Don’t change your mind and move it around

later


5. Ways to make your article visible

• Journal/conference

proceedings -> reader

• Journal/conference

proceedings -> > Global indexing

system -> reader

• Institutional repository -> reader ??

• Institutional repository -> > Global indexing system -

> reader

• Any of the above -> Search engine -> reader

• Your own article webpage -> Search engine ->

reader

• Your own article webpage -> Institutional and

peer’s webpages -> reader


6. Two things to Optimize

• Actual visibility

• Measured visibility


Optimizing Actual Impact

(Strong Results + Visibility)

• The best journal for the purpose:

Pick the journal that reaches the right

readership, , that is, the people that will read and

use your results. Both impact factors and oa

policy count, but neither is decisive.

• Your own marketing (as above)

• Your institution’s marketing (find(

out what they

do, obtain their OA policy)


Optimizing Estimated Impact

(Present and Future Impact Factors)

• Find out current policies + predict future

policies in assessment situations

• Article impact vs journal impact?

• Add points for all articles, , or pick the best

ones?

• Duration during which impact is measured?

• Time when journal impact is measured?

• (Future) bias in favor of open access?
