2024 Spring Writing Retreat | Writing for Publication: The Social Practices of Getting Published in Academic Journals
Presenter: Mary Jane Curry, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Warner Graduate School of Education & Human Development, University of Rochester
Audience: Masters and Ph.D. students
This workshop aims to demystify the social practices—actions, activities, habits, and conventions—of writing for publication in academic journals. It will help participants better understand their options in terms of possible article types; identify pressures from their institutional context and their personal commitment to publishing; select the best target journals for a particular text; pinpoint the ongoing ‘conversations’ within target journals; become familiar with the necessary resources to support publishing; and learn how to communicate with journal gatekeepers.
This is a hands-on workshop. Complimentary Pens and notepads will be provided. Participants should bring a computer. Attendees will receive a certificate of acknowledgment to mark the completion of the workshop. This opportunity is limited to 50 participants. Please register early to secure your seat.
