Post publication impact

Promoting your article

We encourage authors to actively promote their articles globally to their colleagues and fellow researchers. Cambridge University Press provides a suite of resources to help you engage with your readership, increase your visibility and make your article more discoverable online.

We are keen to encourage authors to send us a short video (1-3mins long) or a blog post (see blog post guidelines below) in which they describe their research and findings. We will be promoting these via Twitter with the aim of maximising the visibility and the impact of papers. Please email blog posts or videos to Harry Busby (

Blog Posts Guidelines (but we can be flexible):

- Length: generally 500-1000 words (shorter is great too)

- Please include a title and a short author biography of a few lines (plus a headshot too if you would like it to be included)

- Posts can include a few images (providing you have any relevant permissions)

- An image idea for a masthead (or image itself)

Sharing your article

Cambridge University Press supports responsible social sharing of published research. This journal participates in Cambridge Core Share, a tool that enables readers to easily generate links to online, read-only journal articles that can be freely shared on social media sites and scholarly collaboration networks.

Please also check the details of your publishing agreement and our Green Open Access policy for details of how you may share the full text of your article.

Impact of individual articles

Cambridge Core displays Altmetric Attention Scores to help authors and readers see how much attention an article is getting online. These are displayed alongside the article's title in the journal's table of contents. Please see our guide to Altmetric for more information.
