Sharing your results

Now that your research, creative, or scholarly project is nearing completion, you should begin thinking about how to share your results.  If the purpose of your project was to make a contribution to your discipline, then it is up to you to inform others.

In general, there are three ways to disseminate your findings: a poster, a presentation, or a publication.  Follow the links below to pages with suggestions and hints for how to do this.
