An Inside Look at Getting Published

October 15th from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM in ESH Amphitheater

Get insider tips on how you can get published AND noticed. One of the best ways to advance your career is through scholarly publishing - yet it may also be one of the hardest, especially if you don't have a lot of time to write. Join us on Thursday, October 15th to get an inside look at the publishing process from those who know it best - the publishers and editors who decide what gets (and doesn't get) published. You'll also receive tips to get your work noticed and learn about open access publishing.
