Publication Requirement

The process of bearing first author responsibility during the entire publication process from submission, through reviews and resubmission, and on to final acceptance, provides unique and valuable professional training.

To ensure that all NUIN students have this experience, as a requirement for graduation, each NUIN student must have at least one first author, peer reviewed journal article published, in press, or accepted.  A co-first author publication satisfies this requirement.  Because the peer review process leading to publication can take a long time, students should not begin formal work on their thesis until a first author publication has been at least submitted.
