Being a researcher is tough! That is the hard truth about academic research and publishing today.

research and by ensuring that people take notice of your work.

The task of promoting your work and increasing your visibility might appear daunting and make you nervous. But don’t worry! This course will show you how you can boost your career and reputation by making yourself and your work more visible online. It shares eight avenues you can explore to promote your paper and make an impression. The idea is to help you decide which platforms you can promote your work on and learn how you can build a strong online profile. The course also includes some FAQs, great videos, and interesting exercises, to help you create a great strategy for promoting your work.

Your Instructor

I am Jayashree Rajagopalan and I am a Senior Writer and Editor at Editage Insights. IJayashree am passionate about scholarly publishing and about helping researchers communicate their discoveries to the world. I create useful resources to help researchers navigate their academic life and publication journey. I develop informative and educational videos, Infographics, puzzles, SlideShare presentations, and learning resources (like this course) on various aspects of academic research and publishing. I also interview experienced researchers and publishing professionals to help researchers understand best publication practices and write about various aspects of academic research and publishing. Class Curriculum

I have earned two Master’s Degrees, one in English Literature from Mumbai University, India, and another in Children’s Literature from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. My experience as an academic editor at Editage has led me to develop a first-hand understanding of the publication needs of and challenges faced by authors. And the experience of working on my own research during my postgraduate degree gave me a taste of a researcher’s life and struggles – from preparing a research paper and building a strong academic network to liaising with journal editors and publishing a journal article. Some of my published works include infographics on reasons for manuscript rejection and tips to help researchers choose the right journal for their paper; SlideShare presentations on 10 Ways to reduce word count in research papers and the types of articles journals publish; videos on career fair mistakes researchers make and open access myths; and interviews with Nobel Laureate Takaaki Kajita and Dr. Jonas Ranstam, the world’s most prolific peer reviewer. I have also authored a paper on Indian children’s cinema titled Heal the World, Make It a Better Place: Social and Individual Hope in Indian Children’s Cinema (DOI: 10.1353/bkb.2013.0020). Outside work, I am aficionado of comics, superhero sagas, children’s literature, and several types of visual art.
