(A collaboration between the Library with Student Career and Skills and Learning and Development Centre - RAS).
What is involved in the publication process and how is this changing? What are the new requirements researchers have to think about when publishing? This series of workshops is for research students and staff who would like to find out more about the publication process.
Who should attend?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research & Teaching Contracts) and PhD Students.
This session will focus on choosing a publication venue for your journal article if you are working in the Sciences and Medicine disciplines. We will look at a range of tools to allow you to evaluate journals, including the journal impact factor and what this means for your work, as well as starting to develop a ranked list of possible journals.
By the end of the workshop you will have:
- Investigated a range of tools to evaluate different scholarly journal titles and other trade publications in the Science and Medicine subject areas.
- Had an introduction to open access and what it means for journal publication.
- Have a solid understanding of what journal impact factors are, how to find them and why they might be useful.
