Publishing in Academic Journals - Thursday, 25 March 2021

Slides Victoria Babbit (2.03 MB)

Researchers must also navigate a publishing landscape that is constantly evolving. This session is designed for early career researchers who have little to no publishing experience. It will provide a basic overview of the current state of academic publishing to enable a better understanding of the process. The session will cover what to consider when choosing where to publish, Open Access, preparing your manuscript for publication, the peer review process and how to respond to reviewer reports, top reasons for rejection, and how to promote your work.

Victoria joined T&F in 2008 and throughout the past decade has supported societies, editors and authors as they navigate the rapidly changing publishing landscape.
