AuthorAID activities reach a wide range of different individuals in a variety of contexts. A recent impact study of AuthorAID intensive courses, MOOCs and mentoring shows that all activities produce results in terms of measurable publication output, wider-ranging publishing activity and perceived impact on improvement of skills and knowledge. Different course types are more suited to different individuals depending on their individual context and specific learning needs. This study has helped explore issues connected with producing publications and a series of recommendations are made aimed at improving course content, presentation format and eliminating the barriers identified by some early-career researchers.
