New resource on academic publishing

This new guide on academic publishing aims to help authors navigate the steps involved in getting their work published in a peer-reviewed journal.  Check out the guide to learn more about:

  • Choosing a journal: Which journals have the most credibility? Which journals publish student submissions? How likely is it that you'll get your paper published in your chosen journal? Learn more about how to determine a journal's focus, scope, and merit ranking.
  • Preparing a manuscript for submission: How do you know what the journal's editors are looking for with respect to formatting and references?
  • Submitting the manuscript: What are common instructions for submitting manuscripts? 
  • What to expect after you've submitted the manuscript

Publishing in a peer-reviewed journal is one of the foremost ways to communicate to a broader audience and gain credibility in the academic community.
