Now that your article is published, you can promote it to make a bigger impact with your research. Sharing research, accomplishments and ambitions with a wider audience makes you more visible in your field. This helps you get cited more, enabling you to cultivate a stronger reputation, promote your research and move forward in your career.

Watch the short ‘Get Noticed’ video and download our Quick Guide and Brochure to find ways to make your article stand out.

  • Consider search engine optimization and keywords to help readers discover your article
  • Think about promoting your article through social media and press
  • Decide how you will share your article
  • Monitor your article’s impact with article level metrics
  • Sharing research is an important part of the research process. This simple guide will help you share your research broadly.

    Share Link

    To help you reach more readers, Elsevier will send you a Share Link when your article is published: a personal, customized short link that provides free access to your article for 50 days. This means you can invite colleagues and peers to access your article on ScienceDirect, sharing it by email and social media. Readers who click on the Share Link will be taken directly to your article, with no sign up or registration required.

    • 50 days’ free access to the html and PDF versions of your article
    • Sharing the link via social media accounts and email helps you generate interest in your article
    • Sharing your article makes it more visible, potentially increasing downloads and citations
    • The process is simple: just click on the link during the 50-day free access period

    You will automatically receive the Share Link at the final citable publication stage of your article. If several authors are listed, the named corresponding author will receive the Share Link, which can then be shared with co-authors.

    Which journals offer Share Link?
    The majority of Elsevier’s journals will benefit from the program. Only those operating outside the Elsevier Production Tracking System (PTS), from which the Share Link data is extracted, will not be included at this stage. These include The Lancet and a number of third-party owned titles.
