How to make a manuscript visible online before it becomes accepted by a journal?

If you want to make a manuscript visible online before it becomes accepted by a journal, the author can distribute it on the Internet or post it on a website. You should label the paper with the date and with a statement that the paper has not (yet) been published. Therefore, it is not an authoritative document of record.

If you publish gold open access (OA), you can make articles freely available before or after publishing. Gold open access makes the final version of an article freely and permanently accessible to everyone, immediately after publication. Copyright for the article is retained by the authors and most of the permission barriers are removed.

How to increase manuscript visibility?

You should consider posting it on social media websites like ResearchGate, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mendeley, etc. It is better to post the title and abstract of your article on ResearchGate. You should provide a link to the pdf file. You can also make short YouTube videos or write blog posts about your manuscript.
