Publishing strategy

Where to Publish?
And what to think about?

Why is it increasingly important to have a publication strategy?
When you are publishing your research you have to think about:

  1. Author Impact: The impact factor of the journal - Journal Impact Factor (Journal Citation Report)
  2. Author Impact: Citations - H-index
  3. Institutional Impact: Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator
  4. Open access journals (OA) or traditional subscription-based journals 

As an author you have to think about:

  1. Author name / Publishing name
  2. Affiliation name (Aarhus University & Department)
  3. ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID)
    ”ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, open, and not-for-profit organization created for the benefit of all stake-holders, including research institutions, funding organizations, publishers, and researchers to enhance the scientific discovery process and improve collaboration and the efficiency of research funding.
    ORCID aims to solve the name ambiguity problem in scholarly communications by creating a registry of persistent unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID, other ID schemes, and research objects such as publications, grants, and patents.”
  4. ResearcherID


    ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification. In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account.
