Beyond the traditional avenues of presenting research at conferences, seminars, etc, authors should consider how their research is presented online. This includes social media and academic or research profiles.
Social Media Tools
Twitter offers a quick way to share publications with colleagues, possible collaborators, students, patients, and the public. Authors can create a professional Twitter account to share publications and other professional activities. Find out what other MD Anderson researchers are talking about by following the MD Anderson experts Twitter list.
Altmetrics are indicators of online engagement. Every time a publication is mentioned on Facebook, Reddit, or Wikipedia or in the news or elsewhere, the article receives an Altmetric count. MD Anderson authors can view their profile, department, or a specific publication through the Altmetric explorer.
ORCiD is a unique author identifier which helps you claim your publications. ORCiDs can be created for free and can be included when submitting manuscripts for publication or NIH grant applications. Learn More.
MD Anderson faculty profiles are publicly available on the main MD Anderson website. These profiles are maintained through FIS, departmental Adobe Experience Managers, and Integrated Media. Learn more on Inside.
Impact Factors measure the performance or rank of academic journals based on the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. Impact Factors are calculated annually with the latest edition released in late summer.
An h-index is a number intended to represent both the productivity and the impact of a particular author. Faculty can review their h-index and citation counts through their Pure profile. Authors who have published in the biomedical literature can find their h-index and citation count through their Scopus Author profile.
