Nuts and Bolts of Scholarly Publishing Workshops
Do you want to learn more about publishing your scholarly work? Join us in early May for two linked workshops that will take you through the process of publishing an article in an academic journal, from selecting an appropriate publication venue to interpreting a publishing contract. Anyone with an interest in scholarly publishing is welcome to attend one or both of these hands-on pilot workshops:
Evaluating Academic Journals: Thursday, May 3, 12:30-1:30, Research Commons Green A
You want to get your research published, but how do you decide where to submit your work? In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to assess a journal’s quality and its fit for your research profile, while weighing issues of access and impact. Participants will get the chance to try out tools for finding and evaluating academic journals.
Contracts and Copyright: Wednesday, May 9, 12:30-1:30, Research Commons Green A
Ready to publish but not sure about that long agreement the journal publisher asked you to sign? This workshop will review the key parts of a publishing contract, explaining what terms mean and their potential impact on your future research and teaching. In addition to examining sample agreements, we’ll introduce tools and suggest negotiation strategies you can use to protect your rights.
These workshops are open to students, staff and faculty at all levels. Advance registration is greatly appreciated!
