You are a #scientist and, you want your papers to be read

People have to know that there is something new out there and Amy D. Willes gets it, she tweeted the news and illustrated it with gorgeous cover art. On Twitter I follow Jens Svenning, he retweeted the news from Amy and it is why there is now a Scholia for the paper.

When you want your paper to be read, you receive optimal results when your paper is used as a reference in Wikipedia. Current Wikipedia references have their references and when people want to review an article, it is only the later papers that provide new insights.

So what can you do for yourself and your papers:
  • Check if your papers or you as a scientist are known
    • a paper has a DOI
    • you have an ORCiD, a Google Scholar et al identifier.. your Twitter id is appreciated
  • You can check your profile using Scholia and you can add papers using Scholia
    • It will identify co-authors with an ORCiD identifier when they are known on the publication at Crossref
Adding yourself or any other scientist is a start; when there is a Wikipedia article, it is great to add a {{Scholia}} as a reference particularly as it will get updated from new papers, cited papers, new papers or because of co-authors that become known.

Obviously a well developed Scholia is a stellar argument to support the notability when a new Wikipedia article for a scientists is considered.

PS you can also add a "main subject" to a paper for instance "woolly mammoth"..
