Moving from the doctoral student role to the faculty member role is a challenging transition. Strategies that motivate and help keep scholarship moving forward can be invaluable in helping make the transition successful. The authors discuss 2 visual tracking strategies to promote the forward movement of scholarship. A whiteboard (dry erase) and a publication trajectory table to track manuscript and research ideas through grant proposal and manuscript submission to publication are described.
