Publishing can be daunting for graduate students and early career researchers.  What types of scholarly products can I develop? To which journals can I submit? What is the process? How can I join a journal review board? How do I negotiate a co-authored paper, especially with someone not at my institution? How do I convert a thesis or dissertation – in a way that lends itself to a peer-reviewed article? This workshop is hosted by the IARSLCE Graduate Student Network (GSN) and Early Career Network (ECN) and will focus on the challenges and opportunities that are especially relevant to those who are in the beginning years of their studies and careers as engaged scholars. Participants will learn about the publishing process from deciding topics, choosing suitable publishing outlets, collaborating with co-authors, and re-crafting theses, dissertations, or presentations for publication.  Editors from peer-reviewed journals will offer answers to participants’ questions and helpful hints.

Presenters: Trae Stewart, University of Central Florida; Emily Janke, University of North Carolina at Greensboro; KerryAnn O’Meara, University of Maryland-College Park; Jeffrey Howard, DePaul University
