Share Your Research

Communicating the results of your research, scholarly or creative work is a critical phase of the research process. Presenting your findings requires you to place your research into context, to connect it with other works and to explore new and unanswered questions. Sharing your research also entails that you prioritize, meet deadlines and follow protocol. The process teaches you how to react to reviews-both negative and positive. (Content modified from the Council on Undergraduate Research)

There are a variety of platforms to share your research, scholarly or creative work both within and outside of the Binghamton University community. Whether you publish an article in a research journal, present at a professional conference or meeting, attend a research consortium, participate in a show or exhibition, or are involved with a performance, you will find many benefits to sharing your work with other professionals.
