It’s one thing to get an article published and it may seem like that’s where the role of an author stops. Where your article goes can impact a contributor’s career long after you crack the spine of the journal issue your article is published in. The marketing and usage of scholarly journals is an often-overlooked component to the journals publishing process, but it can have big impacts! In this panel, we will talk with the people that know the most about the life-cycle of your article and how you can understand its impact. Additionally, we will take a closer look at some of the metrics used to measure impact and ask whether they are useful tools for evaluating scholarship in the humanities.
