Academic Publishing Workshop

Tuesday, 1 May 2018, 11am – 1pm

Academic Publishing  Workshop

For most postgraduates and early-career researchers the pathway to publishing begins with the process of transforming their doctoral or master's thesis into a journal article or published monograph. The second workshop in the series focuses specifically on the challenges facing those undertaking, or contemplating undertaking, this important process. Attendees will hear from an experienced journal editor as well as a representative of a leading academic publishing house. Participants will learn the importance of submitting their work to relevant peer-reviewed publishers and will receive advice on what makes for an outstanding piece of academic writing. They will also be prepared for what to expect during the academic publication process and how they can make their work stand out for prospective academic publishers.

Speakers:  Elizabeth Friend-Smith (Cambridge University Press) & Robert Armstrong (TCD)
