Promote your article
We are committed to promoting and increasing the visibility of your article and would like to work with you to promote your paper to potential readers.
... In the Promote Your Article category, I took the suggestion to add the information to my email signature."
Listed below are some simple and effective methods to promote your paper to reach the widest and most appropriate audiences.
- Author eprints: Your friends and contacts can now read your published articles for free. The introduction of Taylor & Francis Online author eprints enables all authors to quickly and easily share links to the electronic version of their articles.
On Taylor & Francis Online you are already able to view all your articles by signing in to the Authored Works area within My Account.
Within the Authored Works section of Taylor & Francis Online you can access the new eprint facility which allows you to send other people links to any of your articles. Recipients will instantly have free access to the specific article on Taylor & Francis Online, without any requirement to register or sign in. Up to 50 people will be able to access each paper for free. One of the 50 eprints is for you (you will always have free access to your articles), and the other 49 eprints are for sharing.
- Email signature: use your email signature to tell people about your article. If you would like to include a free banner like the sample below, then please fill out the banner request form.
- Reading lists: add your article, or the journal, to your students' reading lists as essential reading.
- Department website or personal webpage: use your staff profile entry on your department website, or your personal webpage, to add information about your article and link directly to the online version.
- Twitter and Facebook: authors are increasingly promoting their content via Twitter and Facebook so it can be picked up by other researchers and practitioners. Place an announcement on your Twitter or Facebook page highlighting the publication of your article with a link to direct people to the online version.
- LinkedIn: LinkedIn is an interconnected network of experienced professionals from around the world with over 55 million members. It is not just for career opportunities. When you create your profile that summarizes your professional expertise and accomplishments, why not include a mention of your articles?
- Join academic social networking sites: academics, researchers, and practitioners are increasingly using social communities such as MyNetReseach and Academici as a way of meeting and conversing with people who share the same research interests.
- CiteULike: you could add your article to your personal CiteULike library to share with others, which helps them discover literature which is relevant to their field. You can help with this process just by using CiteULike and through the invite a friend feature.
- Discussion lists: post a short message to any discussion lists you are a member of, letting people know that the journal's latest issue, which includes your article, is now available. The easiest way to do this is to register for the table of contents alert for the journal so you can forward the email once you have received it. When browsing our content, at the top of the page (under the journal cover image) you can click on the Alert Me button. Please select the type of alert you require from the dropdown menu (either email alert or RSS feed).
- Blogs: if you blog, don't forget to inform other users about your article.
- Library recommendation: check your institution has a subscription to the journal. If not, recommend it for the next subscription year.
- Free sample copy: encourage others to request a free sample copy from the “Free Sample Copy” link on the journal homepage to introduce them to the work published in the journal.
Book authors: if you have written a book that Routledge has published, you may be interested in how your book is promoted so that it reaches its intended audience, and how you will be supported as an advocate for your book.
