Communicate your Research: Choosing where to Publish (STEM)


What are the options for communicating your research in a digital environment? How is publishing evolving and how do you choose the most appropriate platform for your target audience? This series of workshops will explore some of the options available to help you make informed choices when planning your publication strategy.   

The interactive session is aimed principally at researchers in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Medicine. Although you will be encouraged you to think about a range of options for publishing your research, based on your target audience and the message you want to communicate, the focus will be on choosing a publication venue for your journal article. There will be an opportunity to explore a range of tools to help you to evaluate journals and start to develop a priority list of titles to approach.  

Who should attend?

University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research & Teaching Contracts) and PhD Students.
