Online via Zoom


Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt, Ida Kubiszewski, Dimity Phillips, facilitated by Dr Manero of RE&D.

In May, RE&D’s Research Notes seminar series features a fantastic panel of Prof. Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt, Associate Professor Ida Kubiszewski and Dr Dimity Phillips. The webinar will be facilitated by Dr Manero of RE&D.

Are you a HDR student or ECR with questions about publishing? This seminar aims to shed light on the processes involved. The three panellists will give their perspective on topics such as:

• How to choose a journal

• How to publish multi-disciplinary work. Should you choose a multi-disc journal to reach a broad audience or target a highly ranked and specialised journal in a certain discipline?

• How to reach out to editors

• The process of reviews and review etiquette

• The politics of co-publishing, research integrity and your rights as an author

Presentations from the panel will be followed by a Q&A discussion.

We look forward to hearing your questions about publishing and journals. All welcome!
