CHASE Essentials: Publishing Monographs (Josie Dixon)

  • Central London venue TBC (map)

Publishing Monographs in the Humanities & Social Sciences

***Suitable for PhD students in their final year or postdocs***

An eye-opening lecture on academic publishing in the 21st century (covering the state of the market for scholarly publications, online publishing, open access and more) with opportunities for questions and discussion, followed by a half-day interactive workshop.   The course is packed with insights into editors’ decision-making and strategies for maximising the chances of publication in a competitive climate.  

For final-year postgraduates and postdocs, the emphasis is on making the transition from PhD to  publication, with a focus on scholarly monographs.

Josie has given this workshop in over 60 universities in the UK, USA, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and Sweden. 

Please note: in preparation for the workshop, participants will be expected to read three articles that will be circulated to them after they sign up to the workshop.
