An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Understands the processes of publication and academic exploitation of research results.
  • Produces some publishable material in print, electronic or other format.
  • Is developing awareness of the range and diversity of outlets for publications.
  • Uses visual aids effectively in presentations.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Understands how research is evaluated and published in print, electronic or other format. 
  • Produces publishable material of high standard; may co-author/collaborate with others.
  • Disseminates in a range of research, professional and public outlets.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as D2.3 Communication and Dissemination: Publication
