The 26th Writing Center Seminar
Efficient Scholarly Publishing During a Busy Teaching Semester：Writing More in Less Time
This workshop is for all faculty members who want to publish in English in the United States, at top peer-reviewed journals or at university presses. The instructor, Dr. Carole Sargent, has made the writing and publishing process easier so that busy scholars can learn how to write more efficiently. These methods improve the ability to write during heavy teaching semesters. We discuss how to understand the needs and interests of top-tier journals and university presses, and how to receive feedback from editors early, even before the paper or book is finished. Topics include:
・Analyzing editorial structures of journals including the editors and board
・Strategies for developing research efficiently from idea to article
・Why it is easier to publish at the higher levels
・How to publish more articles in half the time
・How this all leads to getting more grants at higher levels with less stress
This content has been developed with hundreds of faculty members at many campuses including Georgetown University, Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Virginia.
*Participants who want to do so should draft an abstract of about 300-350 words for the paper or book they are writing and bring it to the workshop. To help write your abstract, please refer to this video from the Masterclass series from the journal Nature. There is also a printable model.
