Preconference Workshop: Publishing in academic journals

This publication workshop, which is led by Dr. Jacqueline Mattis (University of Michigan), will provide concrete guidance on how to write for academic journals. We will review the most common mistakes that contribute to rejection of manuscripts. We will outline strategies for avoiding each of those mistakes. The workshop will explore key strategies for successfully framing manuscripts; writing a critical literature review from opening sentence to close of the review; constructing an effective Discussion section; selecting a journal; and planning for long-term productivity.
