Publication Strategies

Course Type: Workshop
Target Group: Postdoctoral researchers
Publishing articles and receiving citations is crucial for the advancement of your career in academia. A strategic approach to publishing helps to stay on track, to use your time effectively, and to benefit from available guidelines. This workshop provides a platform for exploring guidelines, sharing experiences, and developing individual strategies. In this workshop, we discuss five challenges:
  • Publication targets: What should we try to achieve in terms of quality, quantity, and frequency of publications?
  • Increasing citation rates: How can we increase the citation rates of our publications?
  • Achieving acceptance: What helps to convince editors and reviewers?
  • Collaboration: How can we gain from collaborations to achieve our publication targets?
  • Journal selection: Which criteria should we consider when selecting journals?
We analyse, evaluate, and summarize suggested publication strategies. We prepare a set of recommendations of key relevance for us.
Every participant needs a notebook computer with internet access.
