Presentation title:
Publishing in academic journals / tips to help you succeed

This interactive session will guide you through the process of getting a paper published – from choosing a journal, to what to think about when writing to improve your chances of publication, and then on to how to navigate the peer review process and what you can do once your article is published to increase its impact.
Primarily aimed at early career researchers, we’ll cover article metrics, use of social media, how to respond to reviewers’ comments plus more. By the end of the workshop you will have a thorough understanding of the steps involved for authors in publishing a journal article, the key information sources you should be aware of, and what you can (and should) be doing to help get that paper published.

Publishing Seminar: Open Science
Open science is a broad term that reflects how new technology is changing the future of science, ultimately making research more collaborative, open, transparent, effective and efficient. This talk will give some insight into how publishers are evolving to reflect these changes. The main topics covered will be open access, research data and science & society with a focus on how researchers can be more effective, better equipped to collaborate and share their research.
