Best Practices in Publishing for Graduate Students

The Best Practices in Publishing program, co-sponsored by the Graduate School and the UT Libraries, provides opportunities to discuss research and publishing-related issues with graduate students from across the university. In six sessions and one workshop, a range of topics will be introduced and discussed with campus experts, including experienced faculty.

Registration opens on August 19 at, and will stay open until all 40 available seats have been filled.

All sessions will be on Tuesdays from 5:15 p.m.–6:45 p.m.

Participants will be required to attend all sessions and submit reflections after each session. In addition, participants will be required to contribute to discussions and question-and-answer sessions. An anonymous submission form will allow participants to submit questions of a sensitive nature ahead of time so speakers will be able to discuss real concerns.

Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a certificate acknowledging your participation. This certificate should be a welcome addition to the dossier that you will need in applying for faculty positions and/or for retention/promotion.
