  • What criteria do you personally consider when determining where to publish?
  • How much does where people publish in your field influence things like promotion, tenure, and grants?
    • What role do research metrics play in this (including journal impact factors, how many times works have been cited, how many times people have engaged with a work in the media and/or on social media)?
  • What are your general thoughts on open access publishing options? What about when it comes to whether or not you retain author copyright over your work?
  • What are some ways that academic libraries could be doing more to support faculty when it comes to publishing and assessing research impact?
