Library publishing support service
The Library offers a publishing support service to university researchers at all levels. We offer real-world, individual advice on all aspects of publishing. The following groups might benefit from our service:
- Research Higher Degree students – general advice on value of publishing, mechanics, how to get started
- Early Career Researchers – getting established as a published academic
- Established academics – practical help or referral to other services as required
- Potential editors – setting up journals or conference publications.
