Do you have questions about publishing?

It's not articles that create impetus, it's research networks, verbal exchange and hard graft in front of the computer monitor
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
There are two crucial things that I find difficult to rank. One is, of course, "status and prestige, the other is "Who reads it?"
-- Associate Professor, Social Sciences
Call me old-fashioned, but for me the most important thing is to produce good research. And I publish wherever I think the right audience will be
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
In a way, the more people read what you write, the better. So although it's called open access, it's more about the free and open communication of your research findings
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
It's like a dart board: initially, it's about hitting the board and then it's about getting close to the bull's eye
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
When I was younger I felt the urge to brand myself, so I agreed to give lectures at the most obscure libraries in the back of beyond
-- Professor, Humanities
After finishing my PhD, I said yes to anything that came my way. I had a lot of offers, so I started to turn them down and think more strategically
-- Assistant Professor, Humanities
I don't optimise my approach according to indicators. But neither do I operate along the lines of: "From now on I feel like writing haikus about my research"
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
Well, it counts on your CV. That's why we write articles, cold and cynical though that sounds
-- PhD student, Health and Medical Sciences
If you get advice from five different people, you obviously get five different pieces of advice. So you still end up having to make a choice
-- Academic Researcher, Engineering and Science
You need somebody to tell you: "Take a look at this!" It's hard to work out where to look
-- Academic Researcher/PhD student, Engineering and Science
Wherever I find relevant articles, I think: "It would be relevant to look for my article here, too". But it's just intuition
-- Academic Researcher/PhD student, Engineering and Science
You don't have to worry about the rights to your articles. You can grant the publishers the full rights, as they don't enforce them anyway
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
So I get to keep the rights with open access? Is that important? I've never experienced not being able to do what I wanted
-- Professor, Health and Medical Sciences
I used to want to browse in arXiv and see "what was new", but I hardly do it anymore because all the exciting things pop up three times in my Twitter feed
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
I feel that I’m the one most qualified to manage how I publish because I’m the one who knows my audience and my field, etc.
-- Associate Professor, Engineering and Science
I don't think I've ever sent a paper to a journal without having presented it at a conference. For me, that's a part of how papers evolve
-- Professor, Social Sciences
Why blog if you AREN'T a name? There's no point writing a blog which might be read by just one unemployed person from Chile, come on!
-- Associate Professor, Social Sciences
Oh my gosh, so you have to join Facebook to be a proper academic! Cool academics are on Facebook
-- PhD student, Humanities
