How to Publish - Virtual Learning Series for Graduate Students

Workshop Details

Content: These workshops have been developed specifically for graduate students (masters or doctoral) who hope to begin publishing soon but aren't sure where to start. Each session will include insight, resources, and hands-on activities designed to increase your knowledge and confidence about the scholarly publishing process.

Although these sessions are designed with SHSU graduate students in mind, other individuals are also welcome.

Session One, Choosing the Right Journal: Why does it matter, and what does "right" even mean? What resources are available, and how can you use them to find a journal that's the perfect fit for you?

Session Two, Preparing a Paper for Success: Learn tips for formatting, submitting, and successfully navigating the peer review and revision process.

Session Three, I Got Published! ...Now What? The process doesn't end at publication. Learn about promoting your work, maintaining your scholarly profile, tracking your impact, and more.

Presenter: Erin Owens is a full Professor in the Newton Gresham Library and serves as the Scholarly Communications Librarian for the SHSU campus. She has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles, has peer reviewed for 11+ journals in her field, serves on the Editorial Board for College and Research Libraries, and is Associate Editor of Research Articles for Evidence Based Library and Information Practice. Her publications, peer review service, employment history, and more can be viewed in her ORCID profile.
