LOCATION: Harder House, Room 104

SUMMARY: The business of peer-reviewed publication can seem complex and daunting. This seminar breaks down the parts and shares examples of the process from both an author and a peer-reviewer perspective. I’ll cover:

1. How to identify publishable papers and which journals to send them to

2. Writing and admin tips to enhance your chances of a favorable review

3. Walking through the process of seeking publication from start to finish

4. …including What to expect from reviewers and how to address reviewer comments and rejections

5. How to get involved as a peer reviewer, and why it benefits both you and science

6. Walking through the process of conducting peer review

7. Post-publication—getting your work known about and read

I’ll bring juicy samples! And answer as many of your questions as I can.
