Publishing a Journal Article in the Social & Economic Sciences
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

Format of workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: Middle or Late stage researchers

How do you get your work published in a well-recognised journal? What is involved, and why is it important? This session is aimed at anyone new (or relatively new) to research-based writing for publication in the social sciences. The main focus is on getting social science work published in refereed journals (though we will also consider how such writing differs from that aimed at other audiences and will touch upon other, non-written ways of communicating research outcomes which participants may wish to follow up). We will look at:
* journal policy and choosing a journal to write for
* how editors operate
* the theory and practice of peer review
* how to respond to the journal’s verdict
The emphasis throughout is on the practical steps that can be taken at each stage in the process. The workshop includes presentation, activity, a step-by-step guide, discussion and some critique of provided examples.
