Sign up for our upcoming ECR workshop on how to publish

Do you have academic work that you’d like to publish but not sure where, are you in the final stages of your PhD? This mentoring workshop is for you! For this workshop, we have invited Daniel Mather from Elgar Publishing House and Dr Raimundo Soto from Middle East Development Journal to talk us through the publication process.


Publication is an important part of any researcher’s career. However, the process of getting there is not always clear. Some of us may have a publication strategy in place, others may wonder where to begin. What do you need to keep in mind when you want to publish? How do you decide where to publish? What should be included and what not? What do you need to think about when you pitch your idea? During this workshop, we hope to provide you with some more guidance on where to start and what to consider in the publication process.
