IJED - How to Enhance the Discoverability of Your Scientific Paper

This course was updated 74 days ago. If you're about to take the exam, you may benefit from reviewing the exam questions listed below before starting on the actual exam.

About the Course:

Publishing your scientific paper in the International Journal of Eating Disorders (IJED) is just the first step in disseminating your research to a wider audience of diverse stakeholders. Science is a global public good and the ultimate goal of works published in the IJED is to improve the health and wellbeing of the community we serve. In addition, academic promotions and research funding decisions increasingly depend on having a high citation count. In this webinar, two IJED editors have teamed up with early career scholars in the eating disorders field to discuss both traditional and cutting-edge ways of enhancing the discoverability of your scientific work. First, we will discuss important considerations in crafting the title, abstract, and keywords of your paper for maximum discoverability online. Second, we will discuss how to create an eye-catching graphical abstract. Lastly, we will discuss best practices for disseminating your work on multiple social media platforms (e.g., Twitter, Instagram). The format will be a series of very brief slide presentations followed by an informal conversation. Dr. Weissman will highlight the importance of discoverability. Dr. Thomas will present on title, abstract and keywords. Dr. Harshman will discuss how to create a graphical abstract. Lastly, Drs. Haynos and Reilly and Ms. Coniglio will discuss social media. We will welcome questions from the live audience at the conclusion of the panel.

This course is based on the reading-based online, IJED – How to Enhance the Discoverability of Your Scientific Paper created by Kathryn Coniglio, MS, Ann Haynos, PhD, Erin Reilly, PhD, Jennifer J Thomas, PhD, FAED, and Ruth Weissman, PhD, FAED in 2020.
