About This Course:

For researchers across numerous sectors, peer-reviewed research remains the standard by which a discipline advances. But many face hurdles in publishing their research in refereed journals, and navigating the path from a nebulous research idea to publication may be a daunting prospect. To address common concerns related to publishing in refereed journals, this webinar brings together three scholars who will speak to more successful approaches to research and publication. Join us as the Education Committee welcomes Trent Buskirk, Patricia Moy, and Kristen Olson, who will focus on how articles might be crafted, the considerations to weigh when selecting a journal as an outlet, and how to better understand and hopefully succeed in the editorial review process.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Crafting your article: How does one decide the purpose of one’s paper(s)? What is the role of theory vs. methods in these papers?
  2. Selecting a journal: How does one determine the “best” journal for a particular manuscript? How does one submit for the journal selected?
  3. Understanding the editorial review process: What editorial concerns are in play during the review process? How does one interpret decision letters, particularly those that invite a resubmission?

Her research focuses on nonsampling errors in surveys, with a focus on nonresponse, measurement errors due to interviewers, within-household selection in self-administered surveys, and paradata as a way to study these errors. Dr. Olson teaches courses on regression methods, sampling, analysis of complex survey data, and total survey error. She has an MS in Survey Methodology from JPSM at the University of Maryland and a Ph.D. in Survey Methodology from the University of Michigan.
