Research and publishing your work

As an Agency which employs persons in various fields such as geography, geology,water resources, information technology, GIS and environmental studies, it is very important for us to have relevant outlets to source information.

One such outlet is that of work published by our peers in terms of research articles, review essays, book reviews and monographs. Yet, for many persons in technical areas they may not see themselves as an author of published material. Yet, there are many ways in which one’s work could be published in an environment such as ours especially in terms of conference papers, symposiums, workshops, as well as, through relevant journals and magazines.

One of our regular suppliers, Wiley, recently provided the Agency with access to a guide for Publishing and Getting Read for persons in the field of Geography. However, some of the tips provided in this document, such as publication strategies, authorship best practices and ethics, can apply to persons in other technical fields as well, in terms of guiding persons in the process of writing various material (such as research articles, monographs, review essays) and maximizing their chances of getting read.
