About the Seminar:

This seminar will provide insight and tips from a Journal Editor on how to structure a paper, write a cover letter and deal with akward feedback from reviewers.

Writing for academic journals is highly competitive. Even if you overcome the first hurdle and generate a valuable idea or piece of research - how do you then sum it up in a way that will capture the interest of reviewers?

There’s no simple formula for getting published - editors’ expectations can vary both between and within subject areas. But there are some challenges that will confront all academic writers regardless of their discipline. How should you respond to reviewer feedback? Is there a correct way to structure a paper? And should you always bother revising and resubmitting? This free seminar will help to answer those and many other questions.

No printed workbook will be provided for this seminar. Materials will be available to registered attendees electronically.
