Academic Publishing 101: From Idea to Article…and Beyond

August 28 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

This course will be offered via ZOOM. Although graduate school teaches you many things, many doctoral students complete their dissertations having never been fully trained in academic publishing. How does academic publishing actually work? Where should you publish your research? How do you actually get papers accepted in strong academic journals? In this talk, we will discuss several major ideas in academic publishing (focusing on the social sciences). Agenda and registration information.
