Journal Selection as a Strategic Choice with Sue Turner
Sue is the librarian at University of Gloucestershire and will be talking about how to get maximum impact from writing. She will talk about:
Reaching the right audience, publishing where peers publish. High impact, high kudos publications and the Gold / Green dilemma. Journal ranking: examples used by different disciplines. Current impact factor and trends. Getting accepted: journal content analysis, types or article, adhering to the style guide, writing for acceptance. The practice of peer review and implications of publishers’ open access policies for REF2021 OA compliance. Journals published by universities. Grass roots, ‘cottage’ and ungraded journals: risk over time. Conference publications (ISSN and ISBN) every delegate receives a copy. Syndicated publishing (same article many journals). Dominance of journal articles in past Research Excellence Frameworks. Alternatives to publishing in journals.

About the seminars
The seminars are open to everyone, staff and students alike, and we hope people from all Schools, Faculties and Institutes will participate. The aim is to provide an open and friendly environment where people from a range of research areas and interests can talk together about research. We hope this enable us all to learn more about different approaches in order to raise awareness of research for all. These have been developed by staff in the Research Priority Areas Sport, Exercise, Health and Wellbeing and Learning in Professional Contexts but for staff from any area to across to share common ground and perhaps inspire interdisciplinary collaboration.
Each month the seminar will look at a particular aspect of research from the practical perspective of the presenter. The seminars will take an accessible and practical approach and act as a ‘safe space’ to think through the challenges of the research process.
We welcome offers to present from anyone involved in research from undergraduate level onwards. Presentations can be around a current research project, maybe on an issue which is causing difficulty, a project in progress, or one that has been completed.
The seminars will be held on the last Wednesday of each month. The next three seminar themes have been lined up as follows:
28th September: Systematic Review; Rachel Sumner
26th October: Analysing Social Media; Matt Reed
30th November: Getting published; Susan Turner
Future seminars to be confirmed are: mobile methods, mosaic method.
