Increase Your Audience
The Article Promotion option has proven to significantly increase article reads and PDF downloads all over the world.
- Building a reputation as a thought leader and respected clinical researcher.

- Generating awareness and discussion among the medical science community.
Cureus promoted articles are cited 47.7% of the time, while non-promoted Cureus articles are cited 32.8% of the time.
