ESI Press News: Improve your Visibility & Publication Impact

On the 16 November 2021, the ESI Press held its first workshop, as part of the 2021 Open Publishing Festival. The Open Publishing Festival, hosted by the Coko Foundation, is a “decentralised public event that brings together communities supporting open-source software, open content, and open publishing models”.

ESI Press was invited to participate in this event after being nominated for an Open Publishing Award. The festival was held over two weeks in November and several interesting discussions, demos and workshops formed part of the agenda, including a workshop on using DocMaps and the launch of a Grant-Funded Open Textbook Program.

The ESI Press Workshop introduced postgraduate students to book publishing and the Open Journal System that is run by the press. The workshop also provided students with practical guidelines to improve the visibility and accessibility of their research and took students through the process of creating ORCiDs and Google Scholar profiles. Using social media platforms to share research was also discussed, as were the different methods of sharing research. Research is not only shared through journal articles and books but it can also be shared through opinion articles, newspaper articles and reports.

You can see the entire presentation on YouTube here and even download the slides here.
