Increase Your Scholarly Impact

A self-service guide to help you increase your scholarly impact, provided by the Libraries' Scholarly Communications and Open Publishing Services.

Your Digital Visibility

You need to establish your online scholarly identity before you can increase its visibility. Visit the tab, "Build Your Scholarly Identity," to get started, and then visit the tabs in this section to increase your visibility.

Some tips for cultivating your digital visibility:

  • Keep a checklist of where you have online profiles and the last time you updated them
  • Visit your profiles regularly to update them, check links, correct any incorrect information, or establish new contacts
  • Use consistent personal identifiers (like an ORCID) and contact information across profiles
  • Link to published works with a persistent location, like your institutional repository
  • Include the Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) of any published works that have them on all versions of your publications
  • Work with your scholarly communication librarian to find additional venues for sharing your work. 

Try this Visibility Check from Utrecht University Library to get some insights into your own scholarly visibility and ideas for improving it.
