About this website

Why have a website on publishing strategy?

Research libraries often receive queries from academics about the publication of their research.

The aim of this website is to inspire new academic researchers in particular to think strategically when publishing their work. In a publishing strategies project, we compiled interview data from eight universities and one university college and discovered that there are very diverse approaches to publishing. The interviews with academic researchers that were conducted for the project revealed the need for input on how to devise a strategy, where to publish work, how to do it, how to make research as visible as possible and the best methods for measuring it.

The main purpose of this website is not to guide users through the ins and outs of publishing strategy, but to heighten awareness among newcomers to academic research of the formal contexts and different elements in the publication process.

The site content is a joint product of all the participating institutions.
