#irelibchat - Publishing & Presenting Research in LIS, Tues 12th March 8-9pm

97% of newly qualified librarians indicate they intend writing for journals, newsletters and peer-review publications (Bradley, 2008)

The next #irelibchat Twitter chat is on Tuesday March 12th (two weeks from today) and will discuss writing for publication and presenting research in LIS. The chat is aimed at everyone - including those who may not have undertaken or published any research before. It is a great opportunity to share and discuss:

  • Opportunities and venues for publishing your research (e.g. blogs, An Leabharlann, SCONUL Focus and peer-reviewed academic journals)
  • Good sources of information on 'Calls for Papers'
  • Tips and advice for presenting at conferences
  • How to get involved in writing about and presenting your work

Don't be shy :) Say hello and follow the #irelibchat hashtag on Tuesday 12th March at 8-9pm
