Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me This? Publications and Academic Citizenship
November 16, 2017 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm
216 Anderson Hall
For Graduate Students looking to publish:
Every graduate student knows the aphorism “publish or perish.” While there is (some) truth to it, most early stage researchers receive (surprisingly!) little systematic guidance on how to navigate the long and obstacle-ridden process from developing a great research idea to seeing it in print (ideally in a peer-reviewed journal). In the course of this process called ‘publishing’, we have to make a lot of choices that are consequential for our careers. What publication format should I choose for my idea? What is the right publication outlet for it? How do I interact with journal editors? How should I best respond to reviewers’ comments? How do I make sure my work is recognized and has impact? In my talk I will address these questions, with the express goal that early stage researchers can make (more) informed choices.
