SAGE presents to early career researchers at the Sussex Research Hive
By Rosie Sheridan, SAGE Publishing Editor, UK
In July, SAGE editors from the Humanities and Social Sciences Journal team in London visited the University of Sussex Research Hive to present to researchers on the theme of successfully publishing in academic journals.
As the importance of demonstrating academic impact increases, getting published is an important step for many doctoral and early career researchers. The presentation from SAGE was designed to navigate first time authors through every stage of the peer review and publication process. Topics included: choosing the right journal, preparing a manuscript for peer review, handling revisions, what to expect post publication, and ways to maximise the impact and dissemination of published work. The SAGE editors also presented on issues specific to publication ethics, copyright and intellectual property rights. SAGE open access options for authors were also discussed.
Those who attended were encouraged to refer to a variety of online and print resources to support them in getting published, including the SAGE Journal Author Gateway. This area is an online resource for authors where frequently asked questions are answered and publishing best practice is defined and explained.
The presentation was held in the Hive’s open meeting area –a space that promotes discussion, collaboration and lively debate.
