Times listed in Eastern Time Zone

Register for this webinar

Conference presentations are often the first opportunity to share your ideas with an academic audience.  These presentations showcase the “highlight reel” of your research, but how do you turn your presentation into a publication?  Transforming your arguments and evidence into an academic publication can seem daunting, especially in your first attempt.  This session will provide students with information on choosing a journal/publisher, revising your work for publication, incorporating feedback, and navigating the publication process more generally.  Panelists will discuss how to transform a conference presentation to a publication in an academic journal as well as how to convert a dissertation into a book.

This session is sponsored by the Canadian Sociological Association Student Concerns Subcommittee.
