How to increase your papers citations?

Did you know that

“Citations to research publications are a quality indicator, important for both the author and the affiliated university. Most researchers are evaluated based upon their publications as well as the numbers of citations their publications receive.”

If you want to increase your citations of your published article:

  • “Choose your title carefully: it is the key to people finding your paper
  • Avoid to select a question type of title
  • Publish your article in an open access journal
  • Choose keywords carefully to make sure your article will be found.
  • Publish a straightforward paper on cutting-edge research or a “hot” topic.
  • Cite your past work when it is relevant to a new manuscript.
  • Use social media. Provide links to your papers on social media
