Open Access Week 2017: Helping Researchers Publish in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Fri 27 Oct 2017


Join us for the fourth in our series exploring resources to help with the process of publishing your research in STEM disciplines - from recording observations to editing to peer review.

This session offers the chance to learn about available tools and options in publishing and reviewing, and ask questions of the experts.

  • local solutions with Cambridge University Press (Chris Harrison)
