Getting research published can be a difficult process. For research students undertaking a thesis by publication the difficulties can be compounded by tight timelines and thesis submission deadlines. This workshop will provide researchers with the strategies to successfully traverse aspects of the academic publication process including journal selection, paper submission, peer review, and final publication.    

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will enhance their understanding of the academic publication process.
  • Participants will learn strategies to successfully publish through the journal publication process including, selecting suitable journals, dealing with various outcomes, responding to reviewers, understanding common biases in the process, and overcoming potential problems.
