Workshop on Publishing in the Social Sciences
Friday, 18 June 2021, 10 am - 12 pm, online via Zoom
Prof. Dr Stefan Ouma is offering a workshop for Junior Fellows on "Demystifying the publication processes: Writing for Peer-Reviewed Journals in the Social Sciences".
The work of publishing often appears as a black box. Scholars are expected to do it, and many of us do it with passion, but we rarely talk about how writing paper of book manuscripts is actually done, how these are prepared for publication and what happens once a paper or book manuscript is submitted for review.
This workshop will demystify the publication process and discuss the do’s and don’ts of paper writing and submission, which also includes engaging with reviewer comments once your manuscript was sent out for review. We will also talk about open-access publishing and some of the pitfalls in a largely corporatized publishing industry. With the increasing shift towards cumulative dissertations, it is even more pertinent to know about what it takes to write a good paper and how the publishing process works.
Prof. Dr Stefan Ouma will discuss this with you drawing on many years of publishing both papers and books with peer-reviewed, international publishers and his experience as a member of the Editorial Collective of Antipode.
