Publishing research in humanities & social sciences: lecture & workshop

Posted on Updated on

Josie Dixon[1] returns to Sussex to deliver her eye-opening lecture on academic publishing in the 21st century: Publishing Research in Humanities and Social Sciences. Josie will also run a half-day interactive workshop, to be repeated the following day.

The Lecture

Monday 18th June, 11:00 – 12:30

For research staff and doctoral researchers in the closing stages of their degree.

  • the state of the market for scholarly publications;
  • online publishing;
  • open access;
  • how editors make decisions;
  • maximising your chances of publication in a competitive climate;
  • open questions and discussion.

The Workshop

Either Monday 18th June, 13:30 – 17:00 or Tuesday 19th June, 09:30 – 13:00
Workshop numbers are strictly limited, so Josie will run the session twice – they are the same session, please only book one date.

The workshop is specifically tailored for doctoral researchers in the final stages of their degree, and for recent postdoctoral research staff who are ready to focus on the transition between a thesis and a publication. Participants are required to provide a short summary of their research interests prior to the workshop, so that Josie is able to give advice specific to you.

  • factors involved in the decision between book and article publication:
    • primary focus on monographs;
    • some coverage of essay collections;
  • general discussion and questions.

[1] Josie Dixon is an experienced research consultant, with many years of experience in the publishing industry.
