Young researchers face a number of challenges when it comes to publishing research. This workshop aims to give advice and answer questions on how to strategically manage the demands of increasing your publication output while finishing your dissertation on time. It will deal with challenges and questions such as:

  • Funding agencies and PI’s look for candidates with a strong publication profile, but it’s not always clear what the requirements are.
  • There are diverging opinions on where you should publish your articles (does a paper in conference proceedings ‘count’ and are book chapters a good investment? Or should you only focus on publishing in peer-reviewed journals?).
  • How do you decide on which journal to publish in? (weighing of content, impact, audience, difficulty of getting accepted, how long it will take, etc.)
  • How much should you publish and at which point in your career?
  • How can you best balance writing a monograph and publishing articles?
  • What should you consider when publishing on your own or with co-authors?
  • What are the main strategic moves you should make and what are the pitfalls?

This workshop is aimed at PhD researchers, but is open to all who are interested. Register here before May 4th. Please note that if the workshop is full, priority will be given to PhD candidates.
