From draft to article: The process of publishing in an academic journal

Getting your research published is important for many reasons: publishing helps you contribute to the production of new knowledge in your area; it allows you to engage with other researchers working on related questions; and it can help land you a job as a faculty member or professional researcher. It can also be really hard – especially if you’re unsure about how the process works. In this session, we’ll talk about the process of publishing an article in an academic journal. We’ll cover how you might select potential journals to submit your work to, what happens after you submit your paper, how you respond to a journal’s decision, and some tips and tricks I’ve learned as an author, reviewer, and editorial board member. There will also be plenty of time for participants to ask questions.

Dr. Patrick Denice is an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Western Ontario. He studies inequality in education and the labor market. Some of his current work examines patterns of racial segregation in public schools, the pathways students take to and through postsecondary education, and the workplace institutions and practices that shape workers’ wages. He earned his PhD in sociology from the University of Washington, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis before coming to Western in 2018. He currently serves on the editorial board of the ASA journal Sociology of Education, was an advisory editor for Social Problems for three years during graduate school, and regularly reviews manuscripts for a number of sociology, education, demography, and economics journals.
