Exploring Open Access Publishing: Strategies for Successful Outcomes

What the event covered

Increasingly researchers are interested in or required to publish their work open access. While the publishing process is essentially the same, Open Access publishing can offer the opportunity for greater impact and a more transparent process.

This session examined the publishing process and how to increase the likelihood of your work being published. We covered open access models, licensing, how to choose a journal and avoid predatory ones, manuscript preparation, the submission process, and how to navigate peer review. Participants should walk away with a good understanding of what they can expect during the publishing process.
