Publishing in Academic Journals - Henrietta Thomson (1.88 MB)

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 with examples and the opportunity to ask questions:

  • 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

This training is organised in cooperation with Taylor & Francis Group.

The training will take place on Zoom Meeting and is free of charge. Registration is required to participate.
