Researcher Development


7 March - Early Career Researcher Network

1 March 2017

12.30 – 14.30, Venue TBC

The next Early Career Researcher Network events this term will explore issues around getting published in the most appropriate places for your research.

Getting published is the cornerstone of a successful and sustainable academic career. A good publication record will have an impact on your promotion, but also on your chances of getting external research funding. In this workshop, Prof Mick Tuite (Biosciences) and Prof Sally Sheldon (KLS) will discuss some of the key issues you need to consider when seeking publication, including:

  •  Choosing the right journal;
  •  How articles are selected, and what makes an article attractive to an editor;
  •  Responding to reviewers' comments;
  • Writing a book proposal and securing a contract;
  •  Dealing with co-authors;
  •  Managing your portfolio, and knowing when to say 'no'.

The event is free and open to all, and lunch will be provided. However, places are limited, and it is always well attended, please contact Phil Ward if you would like a place.
