Getting Published in Academic Journals
Prof. Ian Livingstone, Prof. Jeff Ollerton, Dr Matthew McCormack

This session introduces research students and early career researchers* to the process of academic publishing and will cover the publishing process, suggesting strategies to help you get published. By the end of the session you should understand how to choose which peer-reviewed journal to submit your work to and what will happen once your paper has been submitted.

Meet-the-editors lunch

Meet some experienced academic journal editors for advice and guidance over a free lunch!

Promoting and Communicating your Research Online
Dr Miggie Pickton, Nick Dimmock and Prof Jeff Ollerton

The traditional means of disseminating research, through published articles, books and conferences, are effective ways of reaching the scholarly community. However, in the current research environment there is increasing pressure on researchers to demonstrate reach and impact within and beyond academia.

This session will describe some of the tools that may be used to communicate your research to a wider audience. It will introduce a range of social media, including professional networking tools (e.g. LinkedIn; Academia.edu; ResearchGate; Kudos; FigShare; F1000; Mendeley), blogs (e.g. Blogger; WordPress) and microblogs (e.g. Twitter). In each case the focus will be on their value in communicating your research and increasing its impact.

The session will feature a case study from Professor Jeff Ollerton and incorporate a practical section where attendees will be able to try out some of the services.

At the end of this session attendees will have the knowledge and skills to:
• Assess the appropriateness of social media to the dissemination of their research
• Join an online professional network
• Create a research blog
• Start microblogging

* We define Early Career Researchers (ECRs) as those members of University staff starting out on their career whose work role involves a substantial amount of research.
