Graduate students are expected to participate in the publication process; however, graduate programs often do not provide formal training for students to engage in this scholarly work. Engaging in the publication process could be overwhelming for students if neither proper training nor mentorship is provided. Concerningly, there are few studies examining how to engage graduate students in the publication process, leading to limited directions for graduate programs to better mentor their students to publish. In consideration of these gaps, a peer-reviewed journal, operated by and for graduate students in education, undertook a research study to survey graduate students’ experience with publication. The participants were education graduate students from a Canadian university. They completed an online survey and indicated barriers they faced that prevented them from publishing and what helped them to engage in the publication process. The authors conducted a preliminary summative content analysis on the participants’ responses, which revealed that not knowing how and where to begin the publication process was one of the common barriers to publishing, while the presence of a mentor facilitated engagement in publishing.
