The rate of publication based on conference abstracts is 52.6% (citation). Lack of time and negative or null results are often cited as reasons for not pursuing publication (citation). Many conference proceedings are included in databases such as Scopus or published in journal supplements, but the actual poster or presentation slide deck are often not available online or are difficult to find.
DigitalCommons@UNMC is a repository hosted by the McGoogan Library that allows you to publish your poster or presentation on a stable and searchable platform. The repository is indexed by Google and Google Scholar, improving findability. Usage statistics, including download counts and geographic and institutional usage, are also available.
To submit your poster or presentation slide deck, email firstname.lastname@example.org along with the abstract and conference name and date. Repository staff will check permissions and post the files.
