Getting Published

After all of the hard work that goes into research, hopefully you will feel that you have some findings or experiences worth sharing. Publishing, whether as a report, online or in a journal, is one way of doing this.

Publishing is a central part of academia. It is:

  • An important part of developing your portfolio and capacity as an academic; and
  • A great opportunity to let others know about your most important research outcomes.

  • What is it that you want your publication(s) to communicate?
  • Who do you want to communicate with? Other academics, the public, practitioners or policy makers? Those in your own country or elsewhere?
  • How do you best communicate with this group? What writing style(s) and what kind of publication(s) are most appropriate? What language(s) do you want to (and can you) write in?
