Identify other factors which might influence your publication choices, e.g. open access policies
Apply top tips to maximise the visibility of your publication where you choose to publish
This course introduces tools which can help inform decisions about publishing. It will be particularly useful for those new to publishing, or looking to publish in a new area.
