Journal Article Publishing workshop

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 -
10:00am to 1:00pm
Radcliffe Humanities, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG
Colin Matthew Room

A workshop for advanced DPhils and postdocs. This is a workshop for those with no prior experience of publishing.

The pressure for early career academics to publish has never been stronger, but the process of getting onto the publishing ladder can seem a very daunting prospect. This hands-on publishing workshop is aimed at DPhils and early career postdocs who are keen to make a start on a journal article, a collected essay, or book review. The workshop will require a small amount of preparatory reading and planning.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

• have a better understanding of the editorial processes involved in academic publishing • be able to identify the key features of published academic writing in specific media • have practised defining and pitching an idea for a journal article • be able to identify their next step towards publication
