Author Resource Center

The Endocrine Society provides its journal authors with a variety of tools and tips for increasing the discoverability and citation of their published work.

Promotional Toolss

Advance Articles

Free Article Link: After your article completes peer review and is accepted by the journal’s editors, it will be made available online prior to copyediting and final page composition. The Endocrine Society’s publishing partner, Oxford University Press, will e-mail your article’s corresponding author a link to that early-release version of the article, termed an Advance Article, that can be freely distributed to co-authors and colleagues. That same free article link will automatically connect to the final version of your article after it has gone through copyediting and page composition and been published in a journal issue.

Kudos logo
After the final publication of your article, all authors will receive an e-mail invitation from Kudos, a service that helps you increase the readership and citations of your work. The e-mail will contain a link to the Kudos site with your pre-populated title and author information. After signing in, you can add brief descriptions of your work and then send them out to colleagues via Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Altmetric logo
The Altmetric badge will appear with your article and allow you to see the ongoing results of your work with Kudos, as well as any other online mentions of your article. For more information, see http://oxfordjournals.org/en/authors/article-level-metrics.html.

ORCiD logo
ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an author identification registry that allows you to be uniquely identified with your work by eliminating name ambiguity. For more information, see http://oxfordjournals.org/en/authors/orcid.html.

Promotional Tips

Video: Consider working with your institution to create a brief video (not longer than 2 minutes) describing your work and featuring it in a way that follows these guidelines. If you choose to do this, please contact us at publications@endocrine.org so we can see your video and consider linking to it. You can also add a link to your video on your Kudos page.

E-mail Signature: You can add a link to your e-mail signature that goes to the abstract of the work you wish to promote, thus giving an easy and automatic way to give your colleagues a quick overview of your publication.

Social Media: Although Kudos provides an easy way to promote your article through Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, there are other social media outlets that you might want to try. Visit www.oxfordjournals.org/en/authors/social-media.html for an overview of the available services.
