“Publish that Paper!” Tips for ECR researchers
Friday AM – a BYO Breakfast meeting
Associate Prof Genevieve Dingle (Editor of Behaviour Change) will lead an informal discussion for PhD students and Early Career Researchers about the things you can do to increase your chances of getting your work published.
Topics will include:
- selecting a journal
- framing your study
- using your cover letter
- abstract and key words to showcase your study
- writing responses to reviewers
- staying positive in the face of rejection
Other journal editors (including Professor Peter McEvoy) will add their top tips, and we will have plenty of time for Q&A from the delegates.
