    Session Agenda

    We are glad to announce that Enago in collaboration with The Electrochemical Society will conduct an interactive online session for research scholars and share practical and effective tips to increase the citations of research articles and make a significant impact.

    In today’s academic publishing landscape, it is as important for researchers to promote their research as it is to publish it in a good journal. The number of times a work is cited indicates its impact on the field. An increase in the citation count undoubtedly has a positive impact on a researcher’s career because universities and funding agencies often look at the number of publications and the citation count jointly, when making tenure and grant decisions. It is also important for the editors to boost citations of the articles published in their journals to maximize the reach of their journals. Through this session, researchers will have an improved understanding of the following:

    • Importance of acknowledging the sources in the manuscript
    • Understanding the significance of research promotion
    • Awareness of various strategies to boost citations
    • Effective use of academic and social media networks for endorsing an article
    • Measuring the impact of the applied promotion strategy

    Firstly, I regularly attend Enago’s webinars as they are very engaging. I find a lot of things in presented in their webinars to be very practical and useful in my research journey. They could also customize a webinar series for the university I teach. The webinars are helpful to the students in publishing better.
