EASE course: Editorial School for Journal Editors

Module 4 Promotion and indexing

Wednesday, 24 April, 2pm (UK time)

Part I of our popular Editorial School for Journal Editors ran in April 2024. Duncan Nicholas, Past President of EASE, delivered the last of four modules.

The format was a lecture, followed by a moderated breakout session in which small groups consider two case studies, and then a final session to feedback the discussions from the breakout groups and answer further questions from delegates.

Each module was recorded and made available to participants together with handbooks for easy reference.

Module 4 content

Many journals focus on the editorial duties required at the expense of promotion and visibility. This workshop looks at how busy and under resourced editors and publishers can raise the impact of their journals and ensure their publications reach the intended audience.

One of the measures of visibility and impact is the inclusion of a journal within one of the accredited indexes, and this workshop will look at some of the problems in becoming indexed and ways that journals can improve their chances of success when applying for inclusion within the prestigious indexes.

Learning objectives

Increasing visibility
1. Delegates will be introduced to different methods of raising the profile and visibility of their journals so they can identify the methods that are most suitable to their own circumstances.

2. Becoming indexed
Delegates will learn some of the nuances of the indexing systems and what to expect when seeking indexation: they will be introduced to methods to improve the likelihood of becoming indexed.
