Tools to help you share

How Can I Share It is a tool that helps you figure out where and how you can share your work based on a lookup tool and publisher sharing policies.

Share Your Paper is a tool that finds the easiest way to share your paper based on its Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

Impact and metrics

To increase the ability to measure the impact of your shared works online, choose a repository or platform that assigns a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to your work. Persistent identifiers like DOIs are long-lasting references to an object and are built into impact measuring systems like altmetrics. You can also create an ORCID iD that refers to you and your work. For more information on research impact and metrics, check out NC State’s guide to Measuring Impact.
