English abstract

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.
Item type:
