Increasing the Discoverability of Your Book Contribution

The IGI Global Author Services Team is working diligently to ensure that each of our publications has the greatest impact in their field of research, which includes:

  • Sharing your publication with our network of global distributors and direct representation
  • Integrating your publication into all major discovery systems and aggregate databases
  • Featuring your publication to thousands of librarians, partners, and researchers
  • Submitting your publication to major indices
  • Metadata Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • And More
The single biggest factor in determining your publication’s discoverability is you. To ensure that your publication will have a high discoverability, share your publication out to your network. As the expert in your field, your professional insights and connections can create a grassroots campaign around your title to reach those who need it, and this will naturally increase your citation impact. Eligibility for indexing in prestigious indices, including Web of Science™ and Scopus® can be heavily influenced by a higher citation impact.
Recommend to Your Library

Team up with your librarian to put your work at the fingertips of everyone at your institution.

It is fundamental to the advancement of your research that it is accessible to those who need it. To ensure your citation impact increases, that your field utilizes your research, and that your research is built upon in the future, put us in direct contact with your institution’s librarian. We can help them explore tailored content solutions that include your publication. Your library should respect your contribution to the body of research and acquire your work in order to support and showcase your efforts to the rest of your institution. Your librarian relies upon your expertise, as they lack experience in your specific topic area, making you the best individual to share the importance of your crucial research.
