 1.       Introduction

Publishing a high quality paper in scientific journals is only
the mid point towards receiving citation in the future. The balance of the
journey is completed by advertising and disseminating the publications by using
the proper “Research Tools”. Familiarity with the tools allows the
researchers to increase their h-index in a short time. H-index shows the
academicians influence in the specified field of research. Therefore, an academician
with a higher level of h-index is deemed to have publications of higher quality
resulting in higher citations.

The number of citations contributes to over 30% in deciding the
ranking of a university. Therefore, most of the scientists  are
looking for an effective method to increase their citation record. Nader
has developed and introduced a method for increasing the
visibility of the research which directly affects on the number of citations.
The following examples of two researchers prove that publication marketing is
indeed effective. Both researchers have used the “Publication Marketing Tools”
since the beginning of 2012.
