Getting Your First Article Published

Getting your first article published 17-10

Much importance is now attached to ‘getting published’. This session offers some practical guidance for publishing your research.
The workshop begins by asking why publish – what are the reasons for publishing and what are the benefits of doing so? Attention will then turn to journal selection and where to publish, before the question of how to get published is addressed. Here consideration will be given to the writing stage – the steps involved and the need to think about the journal’s readership. The subjects of article structuring and referencing, as well as preparing the final manuscript, will also be examined.
In the second part of the session the focus will turn to the submission process, including the writing of covering letters, before consideration is given to dealing with feedback, including handling revisions and managing possible rejections. The session will finish with some recommendations from those ‘in the know’, amongst them journal editors, as well as suggestions on the intermediate steps that can be taken to support the successful submission of your first article, including writing for newsletters and contributing to blogs and e-bulletins.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have:

  • Explored the reasons and motivations for publishing
  • Gained an understanding of the stages involved in preparing a paper for publication
  • Considered how to structure an academic article
  • Acquired an understanding of the submission process and how to handle feedback
  • Considered a range of recommendations for success in getting published.
