I am published - now what?[edit | edit source]

As you know getting a paper in the peer reviewed literature does not guarantee it will be widely read. In the group we then take the following steps:

  1. Write up a summary page in Appropedia of your article and place it in this category - it should link back to your literature review and any protocols you used. For particularly good methods or description of new equipment you must make sure your stls are available on Thingiverse and description is on Instructables. All the links to these added nuggets of goodness should be in your project page. It should also have key findings and enhanced figures. It must have the full citation for your paper with a link both to the article at the journal via DOI and a link to your preprint on Finally, you should hyperlink all keywords within Appropedia and drop it in appropriate categories (e.g. photovoltaic).
  2. Format the pre-print for with a header showing the full citation. Include all figures and tables - make it as readable as possible and send to Dr. Pearce to post MTU's pre-prints on, arXiv and HAL for technical papers or SSRN for sustainability papers and/or Qspace.
  3. Write up a short summary from your appropedia summary for the MTU sustainability blog, co-post on Energypedia and /or Engineering for Change and/or Technology Exchange and/or QIEEP and now Elsevier allows audio slides
  4. Post abstract on your LinkedIn account
  5. Finally if your work is newsworthy we will write a summary and send it to the University Press Office to release or do a video release.
