You've published an article. You can increase your work's discovery and citation rates and track its impact via the following avenues:
Academic social networks (ASN) allow researchers to create profiles, connect with others in their field, and upload articles to increase the exposure of their work. Popular sites include Academia.edu, ResearchGate, and Mendeley. Some academics also use LinkedIn.
It's important to be cautious when using these sites, as they are for-profit companies seeking to generate revenue. Before uploading work to an ASN, you should check the copyright policy of the journal(s) in which you have published. In many cases, authors may not have permission to make their work publicly available through these sites.
For more information about ASN and the important considerations to take into account before using them, see:
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized. -- from https://orcid.org/
Check out these videos for an introduction to ORCID and how it can help advance your professional activities:
This video teaches four important scholarly communication tools:
1. ORCID - A persistent identifier for you and your research.
2. ImpactStory - A place to document how your research has been shared and re-used online.
3. Publons - A place to document your peer review activities.
4. Open Science Framework - A place to openly collaborate on your research.
