Navigating peer review: How to get published with your writing, ideas, integrity and emotions intact
This workshop will cover crucial information and give guidance relating to topics such as choosing journals for publication, journal status (impact factor, rankings), reviewing processes. It will explain why papers get rejected – and buttress your defences against being rejected in the first place. We will then dive into the murky realm of peer review and reveal secrets of what really happens, pinpointing key moments and ways you can influence the process and outcome. We will work with real examples of rejection letters and reviewers' comments, enabling you to learn to 'read' them in a way that places you in a strong position to respond and decide what to do next. We will also explore examples of responses to editors, so you can influence the editor's decision and hopefully increase your chances of acceptance.  Prior to the workshop, participants are asked to:  (A) Watch this video about academic publishing (32 minutes). If you prefer to watch it in smaller chunks, you’ll find the links here. Think about:  (a) Key things you learned from the video (b) Any questions that have come up that you would like answered (c)  Anything you do in relation to these issues that was not covered (eg. Other factors you consider in choosing journals?)  B. Choose one from a collection of real rejection letters (download here). It includes examples for a range of disciplines. Try to identify on why the paper was rejected – not all the flaws, but which were the crucial issues that led to a rejection?  C. Bring either a hard or soft copy of a short collection of real reviewer comments (download here) – we will use these in detail in the workshop (but you don’t need to read it in advance).  For ethics reasons these documents must not be shared with others not attending the workshop. 31/05/23, 3 hrs, 1300- 1600 AEST.  Presented by - Nick Hopwood, University of Technology Sydney.
