Navigating the Journal Publishing Landscape
Date and Time: Wednesday 13th December, 2 – 4pm
Location: University of Sheffield

This workshop has been organised by the Wellbeing, Health and Community Pathway and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. Whilst this workshop is aimed at WHC Pathway students, PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.

The session explores the contemporary journal publishing landscape, focusing on open access and what it means for postgraduate researchers and how to avoid cloned and .predatory journals. Therefore, the focus is on the practical implications of OA for Postgraduate researchers and how to make informed decisions on where to publish, rather than how to write for publication. It will consist of a lecture on the current publishing landscape and its implications. Participants will be invited to work in small groups to evaluate a set of journals and what they offer to and expect of authors. The focus will be on journals on the field of health and wellbeing.

This course will cover:

  • A brief intro to the research grant funding landscape – (focusing mainly on Research Council and Charity Funding)
  • Practical tips when applying for your first research grant
  • Understanding what funding bodies are looking for
  • Putting grant writing into practice – learning from ECR experience
