H-index is a common index for assessing the output and impact of researchers, departments, and universities. H-index will increase by citation of academic papers that also can be influential in improving the university ranking. One of the key ways to increase citations is to expose the research output to the widest possible audience. Publishing a high quality paper in a scientific journal is only half the way of receiving citations in the future. The rest of the journey is advertising and disseminating the publications by using the proper “Research Tools”. Citations to an article strongly depend on the visibility, rather than the merit of the article. Researchers have spent plenty of time and effort on writing their research for publication. However, most of the researchers stop their work after publication. Dissemination and archiving an article is an essential phase of the publication life cycle. There are tools that help to increase citation, H-index and research visibility. Effective use of these tools, which will be elaborated in this webinar, can result in increased visibility and, thus, improve the paper citations, sequentially researcher H-index, and university ranking.
