This interactive, online workshop will go into great detail about the ins and outs of the publishing experience offering valuable advice and guidance for the entire process in order to turn coursework papers into scholarly articles, including personalized feedback on your work.

Participants will also be paired with a professor with matching research interests for live, one-on-one feedback in an online breakout.

  • Discovering the strengths and weakness of your paper or article
  • Turning coursework papers into part of your research agenda
  • Determining where you should submit your papers and how many times can you shop a paper out

  • Turning rejections into opportunities
