Publishing is one of the primary means for exchanging ideas within the scholarly community. Advances in technology have changed the methods that we use to share these ideas. As information creators and consumers, we need to consider how we can contribute our ideas to these scholarly communities so that our work will have the greatest impact within our respective fields.
The purpose of this guide is to connect you with different resources to help you find the right communities to share your work. It also includes resources to understand how to track and increase the impact of your work.
Journals and books are not the only places to publish your work. Explore presenting your work at conferences so you can get feedback that can enhance the quality of your work. At a conference you can read a paper, give a presentation, or present a research poster to share your work, which is another form of publishing.
