Pathways to Publishing

Thursday, 8 March 2018, 2 – 4pm

Pathways to Publishing

The role of publishing has never been more important than in today's academy. Nonetheless, for many postgraduates, getting published can often feel like an intangible and far-off aspiration. The primary aim of this workshop is to introduce participants to the challenges and opportunities of the publication process. It will focus on why the issue of publishing has become so central to pursuing an academic career and, most importantly, how participants can transition from "writing for assessment" to publishing their research conclusions for the benefit of the wider academic community and beyond. Attendees will hear from speakers who have been through this process themselves and can offer practical advice about how to take advantage of the opportunities available to TCD postgraduates.

Outcomes: Understanding the role and importance of publishing within the modern academy

  • Developing writing strategies and concrete pathways towards getting published
  • Recognising the tools and opportunities available to TCD postgraduate students
  • Deciding when to aim for publication of your research work
  • Learning to balance writing for publication with postgraduate work
This workshop is organised by Eamonn McGrattan and Peter West
