Learn how to publish your PhD findings! This workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to navigate the publishing process through understanding the role of authors, reviewers, and editors.

By the end of the session, attendees will be aware of the full publishing process for academic journals, and be equipped with key knowledge on the structure, content, and decision making that goes into a published paper that they can apply to their own work. They will get an honest look at how the editorial and peer review process works, and how to make it work for them. This workshop includes
Publishing from the author's perspective: Attendees will be introduced to the publishing process, given an overview of the lifecycle of an article submitted for publication, and given advice on how to choose a journal for publishing their own work.
Publishing from the reviewer's perspective: Covering the importance of reviewing as a skill for your career inside or outside the academy, how to get involved in peer reviewing, practical advice on how to conduct a review, and how to provide constructive feedback for authors.
