Journals: publishing your research effectively (for PhD students in Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences)


Publishing journal articles is a key element of a successful research career. As you are starting on this journey, you may have a lot of questions, for example:

  • Where and how should I publish my research?
  • How do I maximise the number of readers and citations?
  • How should I respond to reviewers?
Target audience
  • PhD students in HASS subjects
  • Other PhD students and postdocs also welcome

To make the most out of this session, please complete the pre-work and bring your notes with you. You will examine some examples of peer review and author's responses, which should take 30-40 minutes. Instructions can be found here:
