Where to Publish?With so many science communication and scholarly publishing venues, it can be hard to know how to share your work with a community of peers, students, and the interested public. Deciding where and how to share your work will depend on a variety of factors.
- Do you need to publish peer-reviewed articles for promotion or tenure?
- Do you want your ideas shared and targeted to a specific community?
- Is it important to you that your work is shared in a way that it is free of financial barriers?

Demonstrate Your Work’s ImpactIn addition to sharing the work that we create, we also want to demonstrate how impactful our work is on our students, peers, and communities. There are many ways to demonstrate impact. Journal metrics as reported on journal web pages can help show dissemination of your work, as can other reports.
- Metrics Toolkit
Provides guidance for demonstrating and evaluating claims of research impact
Provides measures of a journal’s overall impact
- Google Scholar
Provides a citation count of articles
- Web of Science
Provides a citation count of articles as well as citation visualization tools
Provides download reports of your articles in this repository
Subject Librarians can help you with these tools and to identify other strategies to demonstrate your work’s impact.
