Strategic Publishing Guidelines for Authors
Publishing the results of your research or practice is a necessary step in the scholarly process.
Strategic planning is important and targeting the best outlets possible in each particular discipline is a priority to improve the likelihood of your work making an impact and being cited.
Excellent research underpins academic impact and it is important to understand how the impact of your research can be measured to help you communicate your contribution and value to the university, the economy and society.

Best Practice Data Guidelines for Researchers
As a researcher, you are responsible for efficiently and responsibly carrying out your research and for communicating the results of research effectively. Good data management can save you time and give you peace of mind that your data is not at risk. If you are not subject to commercial or ethical restrictions, you can also increase your research profile by including data outputs as part of your dissemination strategy.
Developing Researchers Online Training Module
The Library has developed training resources in three learning modules, scaffolded to mirror the trajectories of some of our leading academic 'Experts' here at Griffith University. The aim is to help enable you (our researchers) develop your online research profile, and manage your personal academic brand across multiple digital platforms.
There are 3 components to the learning modules;
- Using digital tools for research
- Developing your online research profile
- Becoming a Griffith expert (for researchers)
Login to Learning@Griffith, search for Developing Researchers in the Organisation tab, hover your mouse cursor over the appropriate Organisation ID until you see a small menu icon (an arrow) appear. Click the Enrol link. Click the Submit button.
