Publishing Academic Articles: A way through the maze

Wednesday, 24 February 2021

Facilitators: Dr Karen Smith, University of Hertfordshire and Katrina Hulme-Cross, Routledge, Taylor and Francis

The programme is aimed at Newer Researchers, researching in the field of Higher Education, but will also be beneficial to a broader audience. 

 This will be an interactive session which will cover

  • The mechanics of getting published in journals – covering preparation and research through to peer-review and post-publication.
  • How to choose the right journal in which to publish considering that there are now such a multitude.
  • Working with other people; gaining and using their feedback (collaborators, critical friends, reviewers).
  • Identifying the differences between writing for journals and other forms of writing with which you may be more familiar.
The session also includes a break for lunch.

Dr Karen Smith is Reader in Higher Education in the School of Education at the University of Hertfordshire. Karen has practical experience of publishing as an author (of over 20 peer-reviewed articles), reviewer (on journals such as Higher Education, Studies in Higher Education, and the International Journal for Academic Development), executive editor (Teaching in Higher Education) and a member of the SRHE’s Publications Committee. 

Katrina Hulme-Cross has worked in academic publishing for over fifteen years across both books and journals. She is currently Portfolio Manager at Routledge Education/Taylor & Francis with responsibility for journal management, development and commissioning. Prior to this she worked for Wiley-Blackwell, Cambridge University Press and Speechmark Publishing. Katrina includes three of the SRHE’s journals in her current management portfolio.
