Congratulations on the publication of your article! Your article will be indexed and abstracted on MEDLINE (PubMed), Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar.
We will do our best to publicise your article, but you can also spread the word about your work yourself by sharing links to the paper on your social networks and encouraging readership at your institution. Here's some great ideas on how to make your article stand out:
• Tweet about your article (don't forget to include the link and @The_BDJ!)
• Post about your article on Facebook and other social media platforms
• Add the paper to your list of publications on sites such as ResearchGate
• Add a link to the paper to your own email signature for a period of time after it is published to maximise the number of readers you reach
• Email your colleagues about your article
• Highlight your article in a blog post
• Update your professional profile.
Your article may also be highlighted in our 'Research Insights' section, where we provide a summary and/or commentary. Again, it would be helpful if you could publicise this on social media channels and within your institution.
You can monitor the extent to which your article is being used via article metrics tools. Altmetric is a handy tool which can be used to track what people are saying about your article online. More information about Altmetric can be found at www.altmetric.com.
