Do you have a seminar paper, conference presentation, or dissertation chapter that you’d like to turn into a peer-reviewed journal article? This workshop, aimed at graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in humanities and social science fields, will take a step by step approach toward achieving that goal.

We will discuss how to:

● Select an appropriate journal for your subject
● Avoid common pitfalls
● Revise your seminar paper, chapter, or presentation
● Seek feedback on your writing
● Submit your article
● Set a schedule for your work

You will leave the workshop with a checklist of the steps you need to take to move from draft to publication.
