From Overwhelmed to on Top of it All

It’s one thing to work through an online tutorial on scholarly publishing. It’s quite another to take these ideas and make them part of your regular research and publication work.

This tutorial is an overview of scholarly publishing. The nuances of publishing will vary, based on your field of study, the role of scholarly publishing in your career, the journals you pursue, and your publishing goals.


  • ‚ÄčAre you pursuing publishing because you think you have to? Or do you have your own goals and motivations for being in print? Knowing your personal motivations can help you prioritize your efforts, create a plan, and work towards your goals.
  • Your motivations will change over the course of your career. This module will help you identify what your stake is today; at the end of the module, you’ll also have an opportunity to print and save these prompts, so that you can use them over time.
