A recent training session at the library looked at getting published in a journal for the first-time. There is a lot to consider and if you can get good advice from supervisors, colleagues and friends in your field that can be really helpful. How do you choose the right journal to submit to? Should you go for high impact factors or open access? How long does the whole process take? What about rejections? How does the peer review process work? What about “supplementary materials” and reserach data sets? What is meant by “Open Access” journals and should you be considering these? And, then, once published, don’t forget to think about how you are going to publicise your research.
Powerpoints and handouts from the day are available alongside some additiona materials and suggestions of useful sources of information on Blackboard.
