GPLL35 - Getting published: The peer review journal process

Getting published is one of your goals as a scholar but understanding the process of getting published in not intuitive. How do you pick a journal? How do you collaborate with co-authors? When are you ready to submit? After submission, how do you respond to feedback?

This workshop provides insight into the world of professional, peer-reviewed publications. We start by exploring the considerations you should take when choosing a journal and submitting your paper. We then discuss the peer-review process and responding to feedback in a professional manner. You will have the opportunity to critique real-life examples of journals, reviewer feedback and author responses.

Learning Objectives


After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Select an appropriate journal for their work
2. Describe the process of submitting a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal
3. Identify the stages of peer review
4. Respond effectively to peer reviews

Leaders Information

When not doing research, Javier is teaching, reading, or honing his cooking skills.
