Topic: Using an Institutional Repository to Rapidly Publish Public Health Gray Literature to Increase Impact
Abstract: In this presentation, we’ll demonstrate how using an institutional repository like Figshare to quickly publish public health gray literature can increase the exposure and impact of research. Public health gray literature communicates important information to both researchers and members of the public and a repository increases discoverability, trustworthiness, and reusability for these resources. We’ll present several examples to illustrate how repository record components like descriptive metadata, digital object identifiers, links to relevant data and peer reviewed publications, and in browser previews of the files, benefit authors and end users.
