Title: Publishing for Greater Impact: Giving Researchers a Competitive Edge
Objective: Scholarly publication is the most important method for disseminating knowledge gained from scientific research. Because researchers are often evaluated by where they publish and the frequency of citations of their work, strategic publication is imperative. The New York University (NYU) Health Sciences Libraries aim to support biomedical researchers by acquiring publication-planning resources, developing hands-on workshops covering bibliometrics and publication strategies, and providing specialized services to assist with all stages of writing for publication.
Methods: The NYU Health Sciences Libraries developed the workshop “Publishing for Greater Impact,” which covers important considerations for selecting a journal, including specialty and scope, impact factor, time to publication, acceptance rate, publishing model, and database indexing. Workshop attendees learn how to find this information using the publication planning resources available through the NYU Health Sciences Libraries, such as PubsHub, Journal Citation Reports, and the analysis features in Web of Knowledge. The workshop also promotes the library’s other publishing-related services such as PubMed Central submissions, EndNote training, and submission discounts to open access journals.
Results: Workshop attendance levels and feedback from attendees have indicated this material is of great importance to the NYU community. Attendees have reported the workshop has allowed them to make informed decisions regarding where to publish and a better understanding of citation metrics. Library instructors have been invited to present at several academic department meetings and have received numerous requests for consultations.
Conclusions: Among academic researchers, there is a demand for assistance at all stages of writing for publication. Library services must go beyond traditional services of literature searching and reference management to meet the needs of researchers.
