It has been a while. Yes.
But here is a link to a presentation on points for a publication strategy I gave a little while back for some 300 PhD students at our university. The presentation was titled “Publishing for impact”
If you are interested in the actual presentation than you need to have a look at the registration of the whole symposium on writing a world class paper, I start somewhere around 2:51. The other presentations that afternoon were interesting as well. See for those presentations the news item in our newsletter.
Related Towards a publication strategy
This afternoon we had the opportunity to inform some of our participants in the Graduate School of VLAG on the procedures in the preparation of the external peer review which will take place next year. The first part of our presentation was, on my part, quite straight forward explaining the details of the bibliometric analysis which is part of the self assessment in preparation of the external peer review.
The second part of our presentation, presented by Marianne, was much more speculative. Perhaps more interesting. It dealt with the opportunities to enhance your publication impact. There are no hard guidelines on this subject whatsoever. We had to strech our imagination to the limit, but I think we found quite a balanced set of rules to set out for our audience.
