How to Get Published: Guidance from Emerging and Senior Scholars

This course available at no cost 

This course will provide graduate students and early career faculty and researchers with critical information about how to publish. The course will feature two panels: emerging scholars who have learned how to navigate the complex and demanding publication process successfully, and senior scholars who have acquired expertise in foundational aspects of publication.

Instructors present an overview of the publishing process, from conceptualizing studies to preparing well- crafted manuscripts and from submission through review and resubmission. Question and answer sessions follow both presentations by the emerging scholars and the senior scholars.

Participants are provided with materials including handouts, work samples, and correspondence that elaborate the important points shared during the session.
