Talking to Publishers

26 November 2014, 16:00 - 18:00

CLAS Meeting Room, ARB

Join publishing directors in social sciences and arts and humanities from Cambridge University Press for this two-hour discussion and information session.

What do publishers look for in their communications with potential authors? How are publishers engaging with the open access agenda, and how will this impact specifically on postdocs? And how can you use social media to interact with and promote your work to publishers, libraries, and distributors?

Publishers are increasingly interested in finding out about how early career researchers go about their work, what particular challenges they face, and what concerns they have about publishing. This is your chance to hear about research from a publisher’s perspective, and to share your experiences of postdoctoral research with leading academic publishers.

This is part of the Postdoc Forum series 'Talking to..' In Easter term 2014, Dr Steve Joy ran a session on ‘Crafting your Research Narrative’ for the CRASSH postdoc forum.

It raised a wealth of intellectual and career related questions about the ways in which post-docs can shape and present our research for different audiences and media. Our Michaelmas term programme builds on these questions and ideas, and focuses in more detail on communicating research and presenting yourself to specific groups - essential skills whatever your career plans after the postdoc.
