Publish strategically

​Publishing strategically showcases your work and maximises your research impact.

Have I identified relevant, quality publications for my research?

Our guide on publishing your research can show you how to:

Regularly reading key journals in your area can also help you identify where to publish. Speak with your supervisor about a publishing strategy for your research.


Have I learnt to recognise and avoid a potentially predatory publisher?

Be wary of unsolicited emails or invitations to publish. A predatory publisher may resemble a legitimate publishing house, but may lack scholarly credibility or use unethical practices.

Before you submit a publication check our guide to publishing your research to carefully consider publishing opportunities in journals, books and conferences. Also speak with your supervisor about a publishing strategy for your research.


Have I registered for an ORCID iD?

ORCID provides you with a unique identifier and lets you link your publications to your name and get credit for your work.

  1. Register directly on the ORCID site.
  2. Add your ORCID iD when publishing to identify your work.
  3. Build an ORCID record that showcases your work.


Have I advised the Library of my new publications?

We can help you with publication management. Advise us of your new publications to increase the visibility of your research and maximise your impact.
