Publishing workshop: From dissertation chapter to published article
Publishing workshop: from dissertation chapter to published article
Wednesday 29 May 2019, 1-4pm, Mansfield Cooper Building, Room 2.02
This journal publishing workshop, held in conjunction with Prof Bruce Grant’s Simon Visiting Professorship, is aimed at post-graduate and early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences at the University of Manchester and other institutions in the NWSSDTP consortium. It will focus in particular on the challenges of turning a doctoral dissertation chapter into one or more publishable journal article.
The session will consist of two parts. The first half is organised as a round-table and Q&A involving editors from a number of disciplinary and area studies journals in the humanities and social sciences addressing aspects of the editorial and publishing process in general. The second half will consist of a series of smaller break-out sessions for close, informal discussion of issues including:
— choosing the right journal for your work
— communicating with Editors
— dealing with harsh, unhelpful, or contradictory reviews
— skills for focusing/reframing a dissertation chapter for journal publication
The session will include the former/ current editors of a number of scholarly journals, including Public Culture, Critique of Anthropology, Central Asian Survey, The Sociological Review and The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies.
Participation is free, but registration via Eventbrite is essential as places are limited.
