when to publish during your phd
When to publish during your PhD
  • Publications make the thesis examination outcomes much more predictable
  • Need a publication strategy and plan
  • Don’t leave the publications until the end
  • Publishing offers the opportunity for peer review and feedback about your project
  • Ideally have most key findings (chapters) published (or accepted) by the time thesis is submitted
  • How many/what quality papers will you need to be competitive for Fellowships? Jobs?
conferences and journals what to publish where
Conferences and Journals (what to publish where)
  • Maximise the quality of your outputs (but bear in mind that quantity will also affect the rating of your track record), be strategic about where you publish
  • Conference publications not usually highly regarded or widely read/cited (although some are published in good journals). This is field dependent
  • Use preliminary work or limited results for conference publications BUT...
  • Conference presentations can include much more detail and up-to-date results (useful for peer review and input). These should be the very best that they can be
  • Use conferences to network and meet potential examiners
  • Save the substantial results and really exciting findings for journals
impact versus reputation
Impact versus Reputation
  • “High” impact factors vary enormously from field to field, don’t reflect the reputation of the journals
  • Look at where the top researchers are publishing
  • Which journals do you use and regard as reputable?
  • Use field specific rankings to get a feel for which are the top journals
how to get your paper read by others
How To Get Your Paper Read By Others
  • Important for you to develop reputation and standing in your field
  • To begin with it will be supervisors’ and collaborators’ names that other researchers look for – publish with people that others will be looking for
  • Think about who you want to read your paper
    • Where do they publish?
    • What journals specialise in your specific area
    • Might need to weigh up the advantages of publishing in a lower-ranked journal that will be read by key people
  • Consider publishing work in an industry- or interest group-targeted journal as well as a quality academic journal.
reviews and keynotes
Reviews and Keynotes
  • Reviews can often be a very useful first major paper (based on your literature review). Can target high quality journals
  • Be prepared to help your supervisor with keynotes and reviews that include your area (even if you aren’t a co-author)
    • Promotes your area and the importance of your work to a targeted audience
