Publishing in Academic Journals
10th November 10:00am - 11:30am CET
Publishing is an integral element of the researcher process with most academics required to publish at least once in their professional career. Researchers must also navigate a publishing landscape that is constantly evolving. This workshop is designed for early career researchers who have limited publishing experience. It will provide a basic overview of the current state of academic publishing to enable a better understanding of the process and as well as offer guidance to help researchers succeed.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
• Publishing cycle: basic overview of the publishing landscape and process
• Assessing journals: what to look for when choosing where to publish
• Open access benefits and challenges
• Preparing your manuscript for publication
• Peer review basics: overview with recommendations on how to respond to reviewer comments
• Typical reasons for rejection and how to avoid them
The session will be followed by a Q&A, where you'll have the chance to ask questions on any of the topics covered.
