Getting into Print in the Humanities and Social Sciences

Getting into Print in the Humanities and Social Sciences

Publishing is central to the research enterprise and a strong publishing profile is fundamental to building a successful research career. But publishing is much more than putting pen to paper. Negotiating the publishing ecosystem requires as much engagement with ethics, legalities, politics and egos as with the research findings themselves.

In this interactive workshop we think through key considerations and strategies for getting your work published in the best outlets. We talk about the process and politics of publishing and how to handle collaboration and authorship issues. We also investigate what happens after publication and explore ways to maximise, track and evaluate the impact of your research.

The workshop content and examples will be relevant to participants across HASS and STEM disciplines.

On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the workflow of the research publishing ecosystem.
  • Discuss the centrality of publishing to personal reputation and integrity.
  • Critically evaluate the quality of different journals and publishers.
  • Apply criteria to identify predatory journals and publishers.
  • Respond constructively to referee comments.
  • Explain issues surrounding collaboration and authorship.
  • Identify strategies available for disseminating and tracking research use and impact.
  • Demonstrate ethical, professional, public and personal conduct and capacity to reflect on and direct own learning and practice, and participate constructively in decision-making processes.

A copy of the presentation including extensive notes will be available to each participant at the workshop.

Presented by Professor Sean Ulm, College of Arts, Society and Education
