REGISTER NOW: Upcoming NECTAR Early Career Academic workshop Nov 2015 – “How Research is Measured and What it Means for Your Career”

You can now register for this event at the following Eventbrite link:


We constantly hear that academics must ‘publish or perish’- but what does it mean in practice? Academic work can be measured in a variety of ways. Different institutions do things in different ways. Publishing without being aware of these differences could affect your promotion and employment prospects in the future.

Come along to this session to learn about how academic productivity and quality can be measured. At the end of it you will know more about how to publish in formats and locations that can benefit your career. The session will feature experienced research management staff who can answer your technical questions, and will be beneficial to research students and any academic staff who would like clarification on how the system works.

By the end of this session you will:
1) Understand how research outputs are measured and how this might differ between universities.
2) Have an appreciation for the complexities of the contemporary publishing landscape and the importance of being strategic about how and where you publish.
3) Understand how publishing does ¬ and doesn’t ¬ play a role in promotion and career advancement.

Presented by Dr Douglas Robertson, Director of Research Services, ANU (and team members)

A light lunch will be served after the presentation. This will be an opportunity to network with the presenters and other attendees.

This event is proudly bought to you by ANU Research Training and NECTAR.

All current PhD candidates and Early Career Researchers are invited to attend.

Date: Tuesday 10th November, 2015 Time: 10:00am-12:00pm Venue: Finkel Theatre, John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR)
