Workshop: Publishing Strategies, Tools, and Services

George Mason University - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 15:23

Interested in publishing your scholarly work? Join the Libraries for an informative workshop on Thursday, April 12, from 3 to 5 p.m., in Fenwick Library Instruction Room 4010.

Collaborating with a publisher starts before your manuscript is submitted. Geared toward early career authors this workshop will explore a visual outline of the editorial and production process supporting the publication of your article or book, and discuss the benefits of electronic publishing’s global reach. The core of this workshop, conducted by Mitch Moulton from Springer/Nature, will highlight the online tools and services freely available throughout the publishing process including:

  • How to develop wider relations by locating other experts in your field
  • How to find the right journal or editorial contact
  • Learning modules to help you write, submit, and publish your manuscript or become a peer reviewer.

Sponsored by SP@RC and Mason Publishing Group, the workshop will also feature a tour of SP@RC by Jason Byrd (Head, Information Services) and a discussion on the benefits of open access by Claudia Holland (Scholarly Communication and Copyright Officer).

If you plan to attend, please register at http://gmu.libcal.com/event/3234300.
