First Author Publication
It is a condition of graduation that each NUIN student have at least one first author, peer reviewed journal article published, in press, or accepted for publication. The publication must represent the research conducted in their thesis laboratory, thus, review articles, methods papers, or first author publications that were a result of a rotation in another laboratory (or research conducted prior to attending NUIN) do not count towards this requirement. A co-first authored publication satisfies this requirement. Students should account for the time required for a manuscript to be reviewed, revised and resubmitted when planning the timing of their thesis defense.
