Publishing in a Digital Environment


What are the options for communicating your research in a digital environment? How is publishing evolving and how do you choose the most appropriate platform for your target audience?

To help researchers at Warwick negotiate this changing landscape, the Library has created a collection of online resources and webinars to help researchers make informed choices when planning and implementing a publication strategy.

This online course from the Library's Scholarly Communications Team explores some of the options available to help you make informed choices when preparing your research for publication and provides practical advice and guidance to help you navigate this rapidly changing landscape.

Who is it for?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research and Teaching contracts) and Postgraduate Researchers.

Online course enables Research Active Staff (RAS) to:

  • Consider the importance of planning for publication and start to develop your own publishing strategy
  • Gain awareness of the different venues available for publishing your research, both formally and informally, and explore some of the tools available to help you identify, evaluate and target the most appropriate outlets for your work
  • Understand what to expect from the publication process, how to improve your chances of being accepted and how to respond to reviewers' comments

  • Consider how you can maximise the dissemination of your publications

The course is divided into eight modules, each focusing on a different aspect of publishing and dissemination, including articles, books, conference papers and less formal outlets, such as academic blogs. Each module is designed to standalone, so you can either follow the course from start to finish, or select the sections that are most relevant to your own research and audience.
