Sharing your research

Just as important as writing your proposal is sharing your accomplishments and research. When you are likely to have an article published send a copy to all relevant academic friends and contacts, notably:

  • People in your Department
  • Funding Body
  • Contacts through research groups
  • Other contacts - people you have met at conferences seminars
  • Relevant special interest groups, listservs, professional bodies
  • Authors you have cited
