Strategic Publishing

This guide provides information on applying strategic measures when considering publishing, promoting and tracking your research.

Some points to consider

So, you are undertaking your research and you are starting to consider where you will publish.

Some points to consider, to assist with this activity are:

  • Set publishing objectives. Are you wanting to build a publishing record, contribute to new knowledge, disseminate research findings or increase your research profile or impact?
  • Do you need to consider access, turn around times for publication and readership including target audience?
  • Speak with your colleagues / supervisors about where to publish.
  • Which publication titles are coming up when undertaking a literature search.
  • Who are the key researchers in your area and where are they publishing. Use some of the tools within citation databases such as Scopus to identify these.
