Scholarly publishing

Researchers generate new knowledge and the more effectively this knowledge is shared, the greater impact the research will deliver. 

USQ researchers are encouraged to publish in quality and high quality journals in their respective discipline. Publishing in such journals also drives excellence ratings (such as ERA) and international rankings. For assistance, ask your research librarian.

If your research is externally-funded, confirm with the Office of Research Development. To help develop your publishing strategy and maximise the impact of your research findings, consider the following:

  • What are the key publications in my field?
  • How accessible are these journals to my audience?
  • Are these journals ‘quality’ publications?
  • What do I know about this journal’s editorial policies?
