Where to publish?

We believe that the choice of form of publication and choice of journal should lies with the author in accordance with the principles of academic freedom. We also believe that researchers at Stirling should publish ambitiously and be supported in doing so.

You should start thinking about where you aim to publish at the grant application stage, this way any funds needed for open access publishing can be incorporated into your grant application (if the funder allows for these costs). You should also consider what page or figures charges might apply to your article (these are different to article processing charges and there is no central support at present for these costs).
