Abstract [en]

The aim of this guide is to give you as a KTH researcher more insight on how bibliometric measures are increasingly being used to assess your research and to present some methods to make your research publications more visible and influential. The ultimate goal is to increase the impact of KTH research publications to gain best possible results in bibliometric studies and international university rankings.

A summary of the tips and considerations mentioned in the guide:

Check the outreach of your publishing channel. The channels with the most prominent outreach and impact on bibliometric studies are international journals covered by the indexing service Thomson Reuters Web of Science.

Check the impact of your journal. If you are publishing in a journal, the Thomson Reuters Journal Impact Factor gives an indication of the average number of citations to articles in the journal.

Publish in English. I you primarily publish your findings in Swedish journals or as reports, consider re-publishing your results in an international peer-reviewed journal for increased visibility and impact.

Plan your research and publishing for cooperation. Co-authored publications have been shown to get more citations, thus usually ranking higher in bibliometric evaluations.

Use a unique and consistent author name. Try to use an author name that is as consistent and unique as possible or register a unique author ID with the database vendors.

Write your organisational affiliation in a way that is easy to identify by an international audience. The proper way to affiliate KTH is by starting the address with the KTH formal name "KTH Royal Institute of Technology", followed by the name of the school, department, research centre or group.

Register your publication in the KTH publication database DiVA. Publication records from DiVA are used to calculate publishing indicators, both for the yearly KTH school performance indicators and for the KTH yearly allocation of funding to schools. Registration in DiVA is especially important for publications not covered by the Web of Science or Scopus databases, such as monographs, reports and conference proceedings papers.

Publish your article Open Access if possible. Studies show that articles published for free access on the Internet gain more downloads and more citations. If your article is published in a traditional toll-based journal, you should try to do parallel publishing in the KTH publication database DiVA.

Contact the Department of Publication Infrastructure at the ECE School for support and more information. The ECE School will give you advice in matters regarding publication outreach and impact, DiVA registration, Open Access and bibliometrics.
