Navigating Scholarly Publishing (Duke Graduate Academy short course)

From publishing an article in a peer-reviewed journal, sharing research data through an open-access repository, or building a website for engaging broader communities in research, scholarly publishing today has many forms and purposes. What works best for your research and goals?

This course introduces key aspects of modern academic publishing and its implications for how you plan and publish your own scholarly work. Topics we’ll cover include practical tips for authors, such as tracking impact and ensuring discoverability, to broader considerations of the scholarly communication landscape, such as how dissemination and use of research intersects with publishing business models and copyright law. As a central activity and outcome of this course, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to developing an actionable, concrete plan for a publishing project you’re already working on or would like to start.

About Duke Graduate Academy

Duke Graduate Academy provides online short courses that introduce Duke graduate and professional students and postdoctoral fellows to skills, tools, and knowledge that augment their regular coursework and research. These short courses help emerging scholars prepare for high-level research, innovative teaching, leadership, and/or public engagement.

Courses in the Duke Graduate Academy cover topics not typically included in a graduate curriculum, or provide an intensive introduction for graduate students and postdocs who might not have the time or inclination to pursue a full course in a subject. Instructors are Duke faculty as well as highly trained Duke staff and Ph.D. students.

The Graduate Academy welcomes all current/active doctoral, master’s and professional students at any stage of their studies as well as all postdoctoral fellows. There are no prerequisites for any of the courses.
