Improve your research and publishing skills!Posted: October 17, 2017
Are you a research student?
Yes, while the undergrads are away on trimester vacay, you’re working hard on your research each day.
It’s a hard life. But you’re committed. And future you (who’s widely published and likely adorned with quite a few extra letters at the end of your name) will look back and thank you.
Speaking of being committed, have you taken a look at our Postgrad Research Information Skills Modules?
Designed to help you navigate your way through the research cycle, the modules have been grouped into three sections: Discover, Manage and Publish.
The modules provide you with strategies, resources and interactive learning activities to enable you to successfully complete your project.
Discover how to develop a your research question, find the literature you need, and use the literature.
Manage your organisation or citations and references, ensure you maintain research integrity, manage your research data effectively, and learn about author profiles.
Then – ahhh the culmination of all your hard work – Publish. Learn how to select a journal, submit a manuscript, and navigate the peer review, revising and editing processes. Explore collaboration options and how to use social media to expand your readership and altmetric score. Learn about scholarly impact of your publication. Then – go at it again! Find resources to help with getting funding for future research!
