Workshop on Publishing in International Journals


Datum: 24 april 2019 09:00 - 24 april 2019 16:00
Plats: Ahlmannsalen, Geovetenskapens hus

In this one-day workshop, professor Srikant Sarangi will guide doctoral students how ongoing research can be translated into publications in high ranking international journals within and across disciplines. The workshop is arranged by the Doctoral School in the Humanities, in collaboration with the Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism.


The key milestones of the publishing process are delineated – beginning with the pre-submission/submission phase, through the peer review and revision phases, to the final editorial decision phase.

Drawing on his long-standing experience as editor of three interdisciplinary, international journals, the workshop leader will use illustrative case studies to outline some of the major reasons which underline the negative and positive outcomes concerning submissions.

Particular attention will be paid to language-specific, genre-specific and discipline-specific practices, and the extent to which different journals (editors and reviewers) tend to attribute differential significance to such practices during the publishing process, although this may not become transparent to authors/researchers. The unique challenges faced by novice and non-native researchers will be addressed.

The workshop is particularly relevant for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who have either had some experience in publishing or are intending to publish internationally. Access will be made possible to authentic, anonymised materials. Workshop participants are encouraged to reflect on their publishing experience and disseminate their ongoing research ideas.

Please note that this workshop is not about academic writing skills.
