How early career academics gain confidence to publish

Brian Hemmings

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


The details of an Australian-based study concentrating on the notion of research self-efficacy are presented in this chapter. The participants in the study are neophyte university lecturers who split into two groups: those who had not published since their appointment and those who were active publishers. Comparisons between the two groups show that nearly all research tasks executed by lecturers were viewed more confidently by the publishing group compared with the non-publishers. The implications of this result are considered and a tailored strategy for beginning university lecturers is described.
