There are a number of free and independent scholarly publishing tools available that save journal authors time and ensure research is found, read and tracked. In this talk, we will explore three of them:
- ORCID - a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
- Digital Science’s Altmetric - thousands of conversations about scholarly content happen online every day. Altmetric tracks a range of sources to capture and collate this activity, helping you to monitor and report on the attention surrounding the work you care about.
- Kudos makes sure more people find, read, apply and cite your research. Kudos provides you with simple tools and guidance to help you maximize readership and citations for your work.
