The panelists will include Dr. Dimitrios Buhalis +30,000 citations (tourism), Dr. Marko Sarstedt +30,000 citations (statistics/business), Dr. Liu Bing +50,000 citations (data science/computer science). Having your research optimized for discoverability online will not online enhance its visibility, but also positively affect the citation rate and overall impact. There are many decisions to make once you choose to publish your work, no doubt the most important one is choosing the right publication outlet. Once this step is established, promoting your research via various outlets is also important and it will greatly impact your overall success.
