Starting today, ORBilu, the University of Luxembourg’s new publications server, is the place to go to deposit all your scientific publications, from peer-reviewed journal articles and papers from conference proceedings to book chapters, contributions to collective works, oral presentations given at scientific conferences, and more.
What’s in it for me? Visibility, accessibility and impact.
- Visibility: by entering the details of your publications, and thanks to indexing by Internet search engines, your research will be visible to other scholars in your field. Wouldn’t it be great to go to Google Scholar, Scirus, etc. and find references to your work?
- Accessibility: by including the full-text of your publication, your work isn’t locked away behind a pay wall. Anyone, anywhere can read it.
- Impact: if your work is being read, then it is more likely to be cited. Isn’t the main problem with impact the fact that your article or book chapter can’t be found or accessed?
Why ORBilu? In a word, to promote your research. ORBilu is designed to make your research visible to the outside world.
How do you connect? Simply go to orbilu.uni.lu and login with your Uni.lu userid (firstname.lastname@example.org) and password. All your publications from the previous system have been transferred to ORBilu. Simply validate them and they will be visible to everyone.
