Writing and Publishing a Research Article (UTSC)

When: November 20, 3-6 pm
Where: Instructional Centre, 1095 Military Trail, IC318


This workshop, offered at the Scarborough campus and led by Mary Silcox, Vice-Dean Graduate and Professor, Anthropology, enables graduate students to become better prepared for each stage of the academic publication process. The session will focus on the following major topics:

  • choosing your platform: selecting the journal or other platform according to impact and readership, open access or subscription publishing, and article or book chapter;
  • preparing your manuscript: effectively targeting your audience, pre-emptively addressing likely reviewer comments;
  • navigating working with coauthors : determining authorship, making the most of collaborative relationships;
  • understanding the process of peer review and responding effectively to editors’/reviewers’ comments;
  • understanding ethical issues related to publishing (e.g., dual publication, responsible conduct).

The workshop blends presentations and brief videos on these key aspects of writing and publishing a research article. In addition, participants will be able to ask questions about their own writing projects and will have further opportunity to receive feedback on one of their drafts.
