The fear of being scooped: share your work

Following up on my post on how to publish as a grad student, here’s a video on scooping anxiety. If you share your work, people will know it’s your idea. You will be cited, not scooped.

Harvard Professors Gary King and Stuart Shieber give advice graduate students about open access, how to make people read your dissertation, journal publishing and copyright, and what to do against being scooped. You should spread your work early, so that there’s a record of an idea being yours first. The video was produced by Harvard “Office Hours“.
