Editor Spotlight: getting published in Education Journals

What the event covered

In this webinar, we put a spotlight on how to get published in Education Journals in a conversation with two of our Senior Editors from Cogent Education.

We are excited to introduce to the series Professor Anatoly Oleksiyenko and Dr Marnie Best to give their insight on the publishing landscape within this field and share the editor’s perspective on what researchers can do to make their submissions more successful.

We will also be joined by Abi Amey who will begin the session by taking attendees through a basic overview of the current state of the academic publishing landscape, to equip attendees with an understanding of the process, of getting an article published in Education journals like Cogent Education.

See behind the curtain and ask your questions to our experts to demystify the path to getting publishing in this discipline.

This webinar is designed primarily for researchers with little or no previous publishing experience, & those that are seeking to engage more closely with the scholarly discourse within journals in this field.

This webinar is part the Taylor & Francis Researcher Webinar Series 2024.
