Join a Tweetchat about Publication Strategies!

We now have many options for publishing our work, from blogs to peer-reviewed articles, books with a publisher to self-published e-books, as well as case studies, manuals, or book chapters. Which mix of options aligns with your career goals?

Mark your calendar- and post questions- for a #PubPlan tweetchat w/ @DrHelenKara & me. No registration needed, just log into Twitter and look for #PubPlan. To participate, just add the hashtag to each comment or response, so others in the thread see your posts. You can start now: suggest questions or topics you’d like us to cover!

Path to Publishing: Create Your Strategy

You spent a lot of time researching and writing a thesis, dissertation, or capstone project. How can you convert your academic work into a career asset? Registration is open for the course starting February 13, 2017!

Everyone knows we should publish something based on the dissertation- but where to start? While some people are on a scholarly track and want to publish in peer-reviewed journals, others would benefit from publishing practical guides or how-to manuals. These events will offer ideas and strategies for a wide range of publication options that align with career goals.

What are the best options for you, and how can you turn your aspirations into reality? If you want to walk the Path to Publishing, but need a plan, this 6-week course is designed for you! We’ll be with you every step of the way, with two live webinars, discussions, and constructive suggestions about how to improve your writing and maximise your chances of publication. You will work through weekly lessons and exercises, and generate a publication strategy. Learn more and register here
