Choosing how and where to publish your research is crucial to maximise the reach of your work. This session introduces key digital tools to help graduate research students and early career researchers in STEMM disciplines identify and evaluate publishing options. If you are a graduate researcher considering submitting your thesis by publication, it is important to use the right tools when selecting where to publish to ensure maximum exposure for the research when it is published and consider open access and copyright issues well in advance.

Learning Objectives:
