Instructional session will provide insights on how ECRs can get their research published
Emerald Group Publishing, a global publisher linking research and practice, and Cabell’s International, a resource specializing in connecting researchers, librarians and academics to discipline-related journals - will co-host “Publish, Not Perish” a free webinar for early career researchers on ways to improve their chances of getting published.
Getting published is the mainstay of a researcher’s career path. Developing a portfolio of published works opens doors to funding, increased visibility within the respective discipline and career advancement. With the millions of papers submitted every day for journal consideration, what do editors look for when considering what they will, or will not, publish?
In this free webinar, Simon Linacre, executive publisher, Emerald Group Publishing, will provide insights into the academic publishing process and what researchers need to know about preparing an article for submission that will increase its odds of publication.
“Early career researcher professional development is essential if the United States is expected to have a well-trained researcher workforce,” said Linacre. “This webinar is one of several free resources we provide, affirming our commitment to researcher education.”
“For more than thirty years, Cabell’s has been providing tools and resources to develop improved processes for journal access,” said Sheree Crosby, Vice President of Global Marketing. “This webinar is an extension of several services we are pleased to provide.”
