There are many things to consider when publishing your work.

A good place to start is to write a personal publication strategy. Your publication strategy will help you to think about what you want to achieve through publishing your research and to focus on the best way to achieve this. 

Use the University's guide to  developing a personal publication strategy to help you write your strategy.

Choosing where to publish is a vital part of the publishing process.  Choosing the right journal, conference or book publisher for your research is important and you should research your options carefully. 

Writing for publication is a big topic with many aspects.  What you need to consider will vary depending on your discipline and the type of output your are writing, etc.   If you are new to writing for publication, the resources and tips about writing your manuscript will help you to get started and to find out about related topics such as plain language summaries, data statements and unique identifiers.

If you are new to publishing it is a good idea to find out more about the Peer review process and the various types of peer review that you may encounter.

SHU publishes some online journals.  You can find out more about these journals, and also the forms to propose a new journal on our pages about Starting an open access journal.
