Event Description 

This five-part series will guide you through the process of converting a seminar paper into a submission-ready journal article. To get you going on your path to publication, the first two sessions will discuss why some papers succeed in getting published while others fail, how to select a good paper for revision, and how to position your article within the relevant literature. The third session will focus on bridging your argumentation from the introduction to the conclusion and supporting your ideas with the appropriate type of evidence. In the final two sessions, we will offer strategies for polishing your submission, writing a professional cover letter, and navigating those fascinating, and sometimes daunting, reviewer comments. We invite you to bring a draft seminar paper that you would like to convert into a journal article. We encourage you to attend all sessions of the series, but you may also attend the ones most convenient for your schedule. 

Intended audience: This series is tailored to suit the needs of graduate and professional school students in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
