Finding Safe Harbor: Strategies for Graduate Student Success

Three workshops offered to graduate students, all in one morning.

  • Launching Your Academic Publishing Career (Lee)
  • Navigating the ETD Submission Process (Hoffman)
  • Avoiding Contract Sharks (Holland)

Some academic advisors require that their students publish their research prior to graduating because they believe it enhances job prospects. You may plan to publish a work based on your dissertation after graduation. Deborah Lee will talk about the process of getting started in academic publishing—the writing process and what to expect from the publishing world. Jenifer Hoffman follows with tips to facilitate electronic submission of your thesis or dissertation. These tips will greatly reduce your anxiety as you near completion of that final requirement. Finally, Claudia Holland will discuss the benefits of open access publishing, where to find titles to explore, and how to spot journals to avoid. She will compare traditional and open access publisher agreements to familiarize you with typical contract language.

 A certificate will be issued to those who attend all three sessions. Coffee and light snacks provided.
