First Tuesday Scholarly Publishing Series

Do you want your research to make a difference? Do you have new insights, compelling data, or innovative ideas that would be of interest to others? Faculty, professional staff, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers can all make meaningful contributions to their disciplines through scholarly publishing. This series of programs, open to all, will provide the building blocks of a plan to publish your research.
