Researchers today are under more pressure to publish than ever before. Not only must they secure the financial resources necessary to carry out their research, but they must also publish in high impact journals in order to advance in their careers and achieve notoriety in the scientific community. External pressure is equally high, as institutions rely on the publishing success of their researchers to secure ongoing funding and continue to attract and retain the best scholars admist a very competitive environment.

In order to meet these needs, libraries are increasingly taking proactive steps to ensure that their researchers are equipped with the skills necessary to become successfully published authors. From leveraging online resources and courses to implementing interactive training programs, librarians are pursuing a variety of approaches to ensure researchers are adequately prepared for every step of the publishing process. By focusing on core competencies like grant writing, article submission, manuscript preparation, peer review and more, the library is increasingly assuming a pivotal, underserved role in the research lifecycle.

In this session, Wiley will facilitate a lively discussion of librarians from a spectrum of institutions to explore how libraries can support their researchers’ publishing training needs. Attendees can expect to learn more about:
• The training needs of today’s early career researchers
• Opportunities for library leadership and support
• The criteria necessary for a successful training program
• Best practices for implementing a training program and generating awareness, usage and engagement
• Case studies that offer real-world application

Attendees will benefit from the multiple perspectives of experienced librarians who are currently pursuing different methods to support the publishing needs of their researchers. They will share critical insights related to how these publishing support programs are integrated into their overall library strategies, the objectives they hope to address on both research and institutional levels, and how such methods can be implemented at other institutions across the country.
