Early career researchers (ECRs) are keen to publish their work for many reasons, from becoming established in the field to improving employability in a competitive job market. At the same time, they face many and changing challenges, such as understanding the different routes into publication; having the time and resources to research and write; and navigating wider contexts such as the Research Excellence Framework and Open Access requirements. Publishers and librarians are well-placed to support ECRs, and in turn can benefit from better understanding the ECR experience of the publishing landscape, and in this talk I will suggest strategies for successful partnership.
