A panel of the University of Illinois Press Publishing Symposium
It’s one thing to get an article published, and it may seem like that’s where your role as an author stops. However, where your article goes can impact your career long after you crack the spine of the journal issue in which your article is published. The marketing and usage of scholarly journals is an often-overlooked component to the journals publishing process, but it can have a big impact! In this panel, we will talk with the people that know the most about the life cycle of your article and how you can understand its impact. Additionally, we will take a closer look at some of the metrics used to measure impact and ask whether they are useful tools for evaluating scholarship in the humanities.
