Presenting, Publishing and Applying Your Research

Your research experience is not done once you have completed your project.  An important aspect of research is sharing the results with your peers and the general public. This is traditionally done through two methods, publication and conference presentation; however, there are other ways in which you can apply your research that we explore in more detail through the Other Opportunities link below.

Why would you want to publish, present, or share your research?

  • First and foremost, you should be proud of your hard work and accomplishments and want to show off the results.  With that said, sharing your research through publication further develops your writing skills and looks great on your academic and professional resume.
  • Presenting the findings of your research and creative scholarship sharpens your communication skills and demonstrates that you have experience in public speaking.
  • Gaining skills in both of these areas will help you advance academically (think graduate school) and professionally (think employment).
