Publishing in Academic Journals: A Workshop with Victoria Babbit
About the Workshop
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 and phd students 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 and as well as offer guidance to help them 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
- Creating impactful titles and abstracts
- Research and publishing ethics: overview of publishing ethics
- Peer review basics: overview with recommendations
- Open Science: an introduction to OA, licensing, data sharing etc
- Typical reasons for rejection and how to avoid them
- Promoting your research: tips on how to share your work more broadly
