This paper by reviewing the relevant articles extracts 33 different ways for increasing the citations possibilities. The results show that the article visibility has tended to receive more download and citations. This is probably the first study to collect over 30 different ways to improve the citation record. Further study is needed to explore and expand these techniques in specific fields of study in order to make the results more precisely.

Both journal editors and authors rack their brains on how to increase citation scores. This is why they should work together to solve the problem. As I pointed out in my previous entry on this topic, to be cited an article has to be first discovered. The discoverability of a paper can be increased with, amongst others, search engine optimization and academic blogging. I discussed the problem of SEO here. Now it is time to write a little bit more about academic blogging.
