This webinar is targeted at Early Career Researchers and Authors who are publishing their first paper or first few papers.
Publishing in the “right” journal is not as simple as it might seem. For young researchers with little experience or guidance, choosing a suitable journal in which to publish a given paper is one of the most challenging parts of getting their research noticed. Taking time to understand the journal landscape and individual journals often saves time wasted by having to deal with an immediate rejection and then re-submit elsewhere, or – even worse – just manage to get into peer review with your chosen journal, but get rejected by the reviewers on grounds of imperfect “fit”. As research output expands, so do the numbers of papers submitted to longstanding, recognized, journals. However, their acceptance rates aren’t increasing, hence making it more important than ever that you submit to a journal that sees your paper as a good “fit”, especially when they have many other papers to choose from. In this webinar, Dr. Andrew Moore will give you some crucial advice and insights to help you negotiate the journal ecology and find the right “niche” for your paper.
• Knowing where your “story” fits into the literature and having a strategic plan for it
• Using quality measures to help you pick a “good” journal
• Representing your research so that the “fit” to that journal is well-explained
