    Abstract

    This paper grew out of a presentation at the 'Research for LIS Practitioners Workshop' organised by the ALIA Research Committees and held at The State Library of New South Wales. The workshop was a satellite event of the Information Online Conference held in February 2011 at the State Library of New South Wales. The goal of the workshop was to encourage practitioner research and publication in the LIS community and the goal of this paper is, (and the presentation it grew from was), to assist beginning LIS practitioner researchers by providing introductory information and tips about how to write up research for dissemination and publication. Basic information is provided about the components of a research report, and the different approaches required for different audiences and types of publication. In addition some personal observations about the practicalities of writing are provided. This paper provides practitioner researchers with a starting point for writing up their research.
