What do you do when you finish writing your manuscript? Where do you publish your research? Have you made sure you adhere to the journal’s guidelines? These types of questions usually arise at the end stage of writing your manuscript. And while you might have finished the difficult part of your writing, you need to select the right journal, ensure it has been written in an appropriate style, and checked to make sure it adheres to the journal requirements. As such, this workshop will focus on the following topics:

  • Selecting the right journal for your research.
  • Finding the journal requirements and adhering to their guidelines.
  • Making your article fit the journal (writing for the journal).
  • Contacting the editor prior to submitting your manuscript(pre-submission inquiry).                    
  • Editing and proofreading your manuscript.

This workshop is for graduate students and faculty who are trying to publish their research, and  wanting to know more about the end stages of successful journal submissions. This will be an interactive session and you will need to bring a laptop/PC and a list of journals that you are interested in for future submission.
