Workshop Description

They tell you it's "publish or perish", but they don't tell you what it takes not to perish during the publication process. Finding the right journal, crafting submission material beyond the manuscript, responding to criticism, and everything else it takes to navigate the peer review process are left for the corresponding, or primary, author to figure out on their own. In this workshop Timothy P. Clark, a graduate student in the Sociology Department with five lead authored, peer reviewed publications will detail the steps, norms, and expectations of the peer review process. Attendees will brainstorm and craft draft responses to ambiguous, sometimes cruel, reviewer comments, pick lists of potential journals for their next project, create outlines for submission cover letters, and much more. Attendees are welcome regardless of the stage of their project, whether it is still in its very early stages, about to be submitted, received reviewer feedback, etc. Regardless of your level, this workshop will provide you with the tools needed to overcome the confusing, sometimes anxiety inducing, unwritten rules of one of academia's most sacred institutions: the peer review process.
