Publishing from your Doctoral Research : Create and Use a Publication Strategy
These neat pocket guides fill specific and significant gaps in current literature. Each book offers insider perspectives on the often implicit rules of the game - the things you need to know but usually aren't told by institutional postgraduate support, researcher development units, or supervisors - and will address a practical topic that is key to career progression. They are essential reading for doctoral students, early-career researchers, supervisors, mentors, or anyone looking to launch or maintain their career in academia.
Today's researchers have many opportunities for disseminating their work, including traditional and digital publications, written articles, podcasts, and other media such as zines and graphic books. But how do they decide which output is right for them, and where to start? Publishing from your Doctoral Research provides methods and tools to help assess, identify, and adapt academic work for publication to support career aspirations.
Discussing what publication can achieve in career terms, this book:
Explains how to audit doctoral research, and any associated materials, to assess which elements are best suited for publication
Provides advice on how to determine what kind of publication is best suited to different types of research
Discusses journal articles, books, self-publishing, online and social media options, and alternative methods of publishing
Considers each type of publication in light of career aspirations
Each chapter includes practical examples, tailored to researchers interested in working in academia, industry or business, a clinical or practical career, or self-employment. Providing key strategies and insights to secure knowledge and success, Publishing from your Doctoral Research is the ideal guide for anyone looking to develop their career through publication within or outside academia.
