Training Workshop: Getting Published in (Tourism) Academic Journals

Getting Published in (Tourism) Academic Journals

Thursday 14th May, 2015  2.30 – 5.00pm

Conference Room, ICOSS, University of Sheffield

During this workshop, we will be opening up the ‘black box’ of turning your PhD research into journal articles. The focus of this workshop will be on two main themes, the first of which deals with how to develop and present your PhD-based research or final thesis into a format that is appropriate for journal publication. The second theme will deal with the mechanics and practical procedure of getting published – what journals are looking for, the peer review process, responding to reviewers’ comments and the publication process. Prof. Rhodri Thomas (Journal of Policy Research in Tourism, Leisure and Events) will provide the editor’s perspective on how to get published. This workshop will de-mystify the process of getting published and help PhD students and early career researchers to identify which aspects of their PhD-based research can make a good journal article.

For more details and to register :

There will be a sandwich buffet at the end so please register in advance to help with planning.
