Module 4: Promotion and indexing

Module Summary
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.


This brand new four-module online training course is exclusive to EASE members, and has been designed in a collaboration between our Training Committee and our Regional Chapters.

It will be delivered simultaneously in four countries, with local language support and moderation from our Chapter leadership to ensure the greatest accessibility and effectiveness of the training.

The course is held over four weeks, with one module each week, and is aimed at helping our member editors make their journals more visible, impactful, and full of engaging material. The four modules focus on key journal, and personal, developments and skills,
aimed at helping editors:

  • improve the quality of editorial processes
  • manage ethical issues effectively
  • enhance the efficiency of peer review and production processes
  • support more successful promotional activities
  • comply with international standards, and
  • increase the chances of successful indexing applications.

The training will be led by Pippa Smart, Past-President of EASE, founder of
PSP Consulting, and Editor-in-Chief of Learned Publishing.

This course is particularly suitable for those in the early stages of their careers
as an editor but will benefit members of all experiences, involved in managing
or planning journal.
