Increase your Research Impact: Preprints, Postprints, and Conference Posters

As a researcher, there’s a lot of work you do that doesn’t get the traditional treatment aka doesn’t get published. This doesn’t mean that this knowledge isn’t less valuable, it means it hasn’t been through the peer review process. Traditional publishing is standard, but it does take time to get your work published and for someone else to cite your research and get published themselves. Citations can help you measure your research impact, but they aren’t the only way. With the creation of online repositories, you have tools available to place your research online outside of the traditional publishing realm.

When you submit your preprints, postprints, conference poster, etc., you make your research more discoverable, therefore increasing the chances that others view your work. According to impactstory.org, scientists report getting citations for preprints in articles that are published before their articles are, and citing others ahead of their article’s formal publication. This also helps accelerating science and discovery allowing others to build upon your work more quickly.

At Mizzou Libraries, you have access to MOSpace which is a freely available online repository for scholarship and other works by University of Missouri faculty, students, and staff. You retain your copyright, and we provide access. Once items are submitted, the platform can provide statistics like number of downloads and which countries those downloads come from. Materials freely available on the web often reach a wider audience than those available in high-cost journals.

For example, a postprint of the following article was added to MOspace in 2018.

Since the post print was added, the article has 3,025 downloads from all over the world, which is up from 2,611 in October 2021.

Interested in seeing the worldwide impact of your research? Submit your your work using our online form today.

For the Fiction Fans:

Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan 

This is the story of Paul, a sophomore at a high school like no other: The cheerleaders ride Harleys, the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl (she now prefers Infinite Darlene and is also the star quarterback), and the gay-straight alliance was formed to help the straight kids learn how to dance. When Paul meets Noah, he thinks he’s found the one his heart is made for. Until he blows it. The school bookie says the odds are 12-to-1 against him getting Noah back, but Paul’s not giving up without playing his love really loud. His best friend Joni might be drifting away, his other best friend Tony might be dealing with ultra-religious parents, and his ex-boyfriend Kyle might not be going away anytime soon, but sometimes everything needs to fall apart before it can really fit together right. This is a happy-meaningful romantic comedy about finding love, losing love, and doing what it takes to get love back in a crazy-wonderful world.

The Book of Salt by Monique Truong 

 

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel

Alison Bechdel’s groundbreaking, bestselling graphic memoir that charts her fraught relationship with her late father. Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the “Fun Home.” It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve. In her hands, personal history becomes a work of amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and heartbreaking detail. More recently, this memoir was turned into a Tony award winning musical and you can check out the book and lyrics as well.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. 

With Pride Month, we wanted to highlight a few of our guides dedicated to LGBTQ resources. These guides are updated throughout the year.

Our guide, LGBTQ Resources, provides useful resources for research on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues, and for members, family, and friends of the LGBTQ community. Whether you are a student looking for help with your papers and projects or you are looking for reading recommendations, this guide is a good resource.

If you are interested in LGBTQ health resources, we have a guide that links to community and nationwide resources, as well as books & media recommendations in Mizzou Libraries and beyond.

Not everything on these guides are behind a paywall. If there is a resource you cannot access, we encourage you to look at your local and university library or local bookstore.
