This is a REd Asynchronous (online/self-paced) class.
Publication in science and academia serves several purposes. In addition to advancing
the field by making new knowledge permanently and widely available to the scientific
and lay communities, publication plays an integral role in an individual's career
development. In this workshop, strategies for researchers and other academicians to
publish their papers in well-regarded journals in their field will be presented. Several
questions will be addressed including:
What criteria do editors and reviewers use in evaluating papers for publication?
What can an author do to enhance the likelihood that their manuscript will be reviewed
What can an author do when their manuscript is rejected or unfairly evaluated?
What is considered ethical and unethical behavior when it comes to issues of authorship,
peer review, data presentation, citation and discussion of the literature?
What are the rights and responsibilities of authors, editors, reviewers and readers?
REd Asynchronous classes feature lessons and exercises designed to build competency and increase efficiency.
Modules are accessible 24/7 and are all self-paced. All members of the University
research community are invited to complete any online classes of interest.
