Use the same variation of your name throughout your publishing career. If your name is common, consider including a middle name to distinguish it from other authors.
Use a standard version of your affiliation and do not abbreviate (e.g. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center instead of DHMC).
Use corporate authors and research group names consistently (The Dartmouth Institute vs The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice).
Create an ORCID identifier. ORCID provides a unique persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers and supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities. Visit: https://orcid.org/.
Disseminating Your Research
Review publisher copyright policies and when possible, retain rights for re-use of your work.
Consider publishing in an open access journal or depositing your article in an open access repository, such as the Dartmouth Digital Commons
Present preliminary and finished research at conferences and/or as a preprint.
Follow up preliminary research findings with a published manuscript.
Publish in journals currently indexed by PubMed/MEDLINE or the primary article database for your discipline.
When possible, make conference presentations publicly available.
