The number of publications is the first criteria for
assessing a researcher output. However, the main measurement for author
productivity is the number of citations, and citations are typically
related to the paper's visibility. In this paper, the relationship
between article visibility and the number of citations is investigated. A
case study of two researchers who are using publication marketing tools
confirmed that the article visibility will greatly improve the citation
impact. Some strategies to make the publications available to a larger
audience have been presented at the end of this paper.
