university ranking system, most of the researchers are looking for some
helpful techniques to increase their citation record. This paper by
reviewing the relevant articles extracts 33 different ways for increasing
the citations possibilities. The results show that the article visibility
has tended to receive more download and citations. This is probably the
first study to collect over 30 different ways to improve the citation
record. Further study is needed to explore and expand these techniques in
specific fields of study in order to make the results more precisely.
