About This Course:

This short course addresses issues researchers commonly face in writing for and publishing in refereed journals. Specific components of the course include:
 
Identifying journals and audiences. How do you determine which journals are viable for your work? What type of audience are you hoping to reach with your manuscript? What is the purpose of your manuscript?
 
Crafting your article. From the main body of the manuscript (title, abstract, introduction, literature review, methods, analyses, results, and conclusions) to end matter (references, appendices, tables and figures), what are must-dos and definitely-don’ts? What micro-level and gestalt considerations go into crafting specific components of an article?
 
Understanding the review process. What happens to your manuscript once you submit it to a journal? What factors go into rendering an editorial decision? How do you navigate the revise-and-resubmit process, and what happens after you receive an acceptance letter?
 
Participants are encouraged to bring draft manuscripts and works in progress.
