Academic Bread and Butter

If you are a graduate student or a faculty member, research is likely your primary focus. But you know that to continue to do the research you love, you need to develop two important skills: getting grants and publishing the results of your research.

Next week, librarians at Walter Library will be offering two workshops designed for graduate students and early-career faculty:

  • Monday, 10/19 (1:30-2:30) Getting Published: How to Publish Your Science Research Article will help you identify journals to consider when submitting your article and discuss how to manage your rights when signing a contract with a publisher.
  • Tuesday, 10/20 (3:00-4:15) Grant Funding - Search Tools and Resources introduces you to searching for grant opportunities with IRIS, SPIN, and Community of Science and the Foundation Directory. You'll learn to set up email updates on specific subjects, as well as find out about internal U of M funding sources.

We hope to record these sessions. If you can't attend, check our Tutorials and Recorded Workshops page next week. If we're successful, you'll see these workshops on that page by the end of next week.
