Understanding the publishing process

Workshops and events

“While most graduate programs do mentor researchers on how to conduct research, construct an argument and write an article, very few offer courses on the publishing process itself. Our workshops offer a glimpse into the mechanics of publishing – the elements of a manuscript that editors and publishers feel are important, the review process, ethical issue, why manuscripts are accepted or rejected, and how to make your work more discoverable.

These events provide an opportunity for us to engage directly with authors, to find out what is important to them, what concerns they have, and the similarities and differences between disciplines.

Submitting a paper to a journal, understanding peer review, and getting your paper accepted can seem a mysterious process. To help demystify publishing a journal article, Taylor & Francis gives presentations to researchers around the world, helping them understand the publishing process, the various steps involved, and offering tips and advice. Some of the topics covered in these workshops include:

  • How to choose the best journal for your paper
  • Open-access publishing
  • How to prepare the perfect paper (and what to avoid)
  • What peer review is, and how to navigate the process
  • How to promote your research and understand its impact

“Great tips on how a scientific paper can be accepted and published in a recognized journal.”

“Thank you for your presentation on Tuesday afternoon at the CREST summer school: it was interesting, practical and highly relevant. I’m about to start a PhD at Leeds Trinity University in Creative Writing: Teenage Fiction, so the timing was perfect for me. I’ve been browsing journals on the Taylor and Francis site – New Writing in particular looks right up my street – and I’m really looking forward to starting my research. I hope to be in touch in future to pitch a journal article.”
