Hepatology International, in association with Springer Nature, is extremely delighted to share with you the 2018 Impact Factor of HEPI which has touched a new high of 5.49 from 4.11 in 2017.

SharedIt services: A boon for Authors/Researchers

SharedIt is part of Springer Nature initiative that allows authors to share their research to wider communities by enabling over 200 key media outlets and blogs to link to free-to-read versions of research articles. This media list has been significantly expanded to coincide with the expansion of the initiative across the Springer Nature portfolio. Many on this media list are aimed at the public, including BBC, The Economist, WIRED, The New York Times, as well as leading science bloggers.

Upon publication, corresponding authors are emailed a shareable link to view-only versions of their peer-reviewed research papers. All corresponding authors are sent this link, even those with papers published in open access journals. A stable, shortened URL is made available for published authors to share the full-text access to their paper by using the link http://rdcu.be/p2UW

Enhanced PDF: The link takes the author to a read-only enhanced PDF format of their published paper.

For open-access articles, all readers will be able to download, print and save an enhanced PDF, or to view the full-text HTML version.

For subscription articles, only subscribers will be able to download, print and save an enhanced PDF, or to view the full-text HTML version.

Authors can request shareable links of other research articles that they have authored with most Springer Nature journals by entering the article’s DOI into our author portal

Springer Nature has a sample social media plan to help authors promote their research via Facebook and Twitter. The four-week campaign utilizes the SharedItlink to gain visibility through concentrated daily marketing, using both direct and indirect (post comments) methods.

For more Information please visit the SharedIt page on Springernature.com.
