Design/methodology/approach: Fictional poem
Findings: This poem highlights that the processes an early career academic researcher undertakes to publish his/her research isn’t necessarily the hardest lesson to learn. Rather the hardest lesson is learning to cope with the mix of emotions they will experience during the process.
Research Implications: Provides early career academic researchers, and their supervisors, a guide of what they can expect to experience during the first few years during their research.
