Your research has been conducted and the paper is complete, now the question becomes, where will you publish? Amid the changing nature of the academic publishing world, along with the sheer number of publishers out there, this can be a daunting step. This panel discussion will cover topics such as assessing publishers to make sure they will meet your needs, rejecting publishers that won’t, avoiding predatory publishers, and ultimately choosing the right vehicle to disseminate your research. This event is ideal for faculty, graduate students, and anyone else interested in academic publishing.
