Thinking about publishing?

Here are a few things to consider:

  • Think about where to publish. What are the key journals or book publishers in your field? Do you have to follow any requirements from your funding body? 
  • Make your research Open Access. Details about the University’s Open Access Publishing Policy and further guidance and support can be found on our Open Access and WRaP (institutional repository) pages. 
  • Make sure you are copyright aware. See our Protecting your work page for more information. 
  • New to the Peer Review process? See this helpful guide from the Research Information Network: Peer Review: a guide for researchers
  • The  Research School organises seminars on the Publication Process and Writing for Academic Journals. These are open to anyone; details can be found in the Staff Development Workshops via the University’s staff page
  • Take a look at Think.Check.Submit. This is a cross-industry campaign to help researchers understand their options and the key criteria they can check before making an informed decision about where to submit their work.
  • If you are thinking of publishing under gold open access, you can apply for funding to cover the fee.  Staff can apply through the staff page, please click on Open Access Funding under Your Online Services. Research students should contact  John-Paul Wilson in the first instance.
