Shaping the Future of Library Support for Graduate Student Authors: Addressing Gaps in Publishing

Creative Commons 'BY-NC-SA' version 4.0 license

Graduate students report many barriers and challenges to publishing in an increasingly competitive environment. They also face a hidden curriculum around publishing practices, which can disproportionately disadvantage first generation students. In this paper, we present preliminary results from a subset of our one-on-one, peer-to-peer interviews with graduate students representing disciplines across campus. We conducted applied thematic analysis by coding interview transcripts and identifying major themes. We will share what we have learned focusing on what topics libraries can teach that will best guide students in their publishing efforts.
