Invitation to a Maastricht University Library seminar to increase the impact of your papers

On Tuesday 24 October the University Library will organise the seminar ‘Publish with impact’. Its focus will be on criteria and tools that will help you in choosing your best journal to publish in and in ways to increase your visibility and the impact of your published paper. The seminar ‘Publish with impact’ is Maastricht University Library’s contribution to the international Open Access week 2017.

Four talks given by four experts:

  • Prepare to be published; get ready to be read!
    Richard White is Chief Editor of the Nature Research journal, Scientific Reports. He was previously a Senior Editor at Nature Communications and completed a PhD and post-doctoral research in biological and organic chemistry. He will discuss how to get your work published and improve its impact.
  • How Open Access expands my audience and increases publicity
    For six years, Stefan Jongen PhD worked as a researcher at the department Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology of Maastricht Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience. Since 21 August 2017, so very recently, he changed jobs and is now scientific information specialist for the Maastricht University Library.
  • Is there an Open Access citation advantage?
    Jos Franssen MPhil is scientific information specialist for the Maastricht University Library, with Bibliometrics as a point of particular interest
  • How videos can boost the visibility of your research
    Ilse Sistermans is a member of the e-learning support team of Maastricht University Library. She manages VideUM, a video support portal for UM staff, researchers, and students who want to use video in their education or research.
