Publication Support

Want more impact from your recently accepted top publication?

Our communications specialist, Paul Avedisian (, can collaborate with you on press releases and blog articles, and create illustrations to go with these. He can also support the dissemination of these pieces using a variety of social media and other channels, targeting U-M audiences and beyond. The center is also set up to track and share the publication impact using Altmetrics, Twitter and Google analytics tools.

This service is available for publications in a journal of impact factor 10 or higher (as a reference, here is a list of such high-impact journals). Impact Factor (IF) can be found using the tool Journal Citation Reports by Clarivate, or by visiting the Michigan Library.

Here are a few examples

Looking forward to helping promote your research!
