Authors' Update

Issue 11 - September 2014

logoWelcome to Issue 11 of Authors' Update. In this edition, we again turn our thoughts to article promotion and we start with a fascinating Q&A with author Thanh-Lan Gluckman, whose research attracted worldwide interest. We then take a look at the ways you can increase your paper's impact at both the preparation and post-publication stage, before highlighting our freely-available Publishing Connect webinars which contain plenty of useful publishing tips.

We also discover how our newly-improved Journal Finder tool can help by identifying the best fit for your paper and how you can then monitor its reach – once published – with our altmetric visualizations.  And don't miss the article by our EES team containing top troubleshooting tips.

As always, if you have a story you would like to share or feedback on Authors' Update we would love to hear from you. You can email us at
