This workshop will help scholars at any stage of their career begin to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for selecting and approaching appropriate academic journals and book publishers to manage their time and career effectively. Topics will include: author responsibilities and publisher services; managing the peer-review process; open access publishing; and avoiding predatory journals, publishers, and conferences.
