To set up a communication plan, please contact the communication officer of your faculty.
Here you find the technicalities of which you have to be aware, without the details of the scholarly information infrastructure behind it.
- Digital birthplace and identifiers
Make sure that your born-digital content has a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) at the time of publication. Normally, your publisher will take care of that matter. This identifier is normally a DOI for articles and an ISBN for monographs. Other identifiers are fine as well, such as PubMed IDs, arXiv handles, etc.
When you do not have a peer-reviewed article, work with grey literature, use data or software code as the scholarly output that you want to track, or your publisher is too small to distribute identifiers, you can choose to use services such as the RIO journal (also for reports), Zenodo (links with GitHub as well) or a preprint server in order to publish the digital-born origin of your work as your output.
Do not forget to add the identifier to the paper in PURE; otherwise, it will not appear in the Altmetric Explorer. See the above section 3. Details of your papers and their social attention.
- Metadata consistency
Ensure that all basic metadata are consistent: the title of your work, the author's name, the year of publication, the name of the ‘birthplace’ where you published your document (e.g. Zenodo) and the title of the journal (which is the birthplace of your born-digital material).
- References in public documents
Make sure that public parties always include your work’s DOI when they refer to it. Ask them to list the title of your work, the author's name and the title of the journal consistently as well.
