How do I improve my research dissemination?
Have an up-to-date online profile.
Whether its your institutional profile, google scholar profile etc. ensure it is complete and up-to-date.
Publish in highly visible journals.
Highly visible journals are well ranked, widely indexed, and easily accessible. Choosing a lower ranked journal might make sense in some cases, but you will need to work harder to make it visible.
Archive your papers in a repository.
There are institutional and disciplinary repositories such as SSRN, ResearchGate, and Academia that allow you to post your research for free.
Push Traffic with social media.
Use social media like blogs, twitter, etc to push traffic to your archived content.
Monitor your traffic.
Most online archives and journal databases provide metrics such as number of downloads and citations. There are services that track metrics.
