Getting published: The peer review journal process | GPLL35


Getting published is one of your goals as a scholar but understanding the process of getting published in not intuitive. How do you pick a journal? How do you collaborate with co-authors? When are you ready to submit? After submission, how do you respond to feedback?

This workshop provides insight into the world of professional, peer-reviewed publications. We start by exploring the considerations you should take when choosing a journal and submitting your paper. We then discuss the peer-review process and responding to feedback in a professional manner. You will have the opportunity to critique real-life examples of journals, reviewer feedback and author responses.

  1. Select an appropriate journal for their work
  2. Describe the process of submitting a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal
  3. Identify the stages of peer review
  4. Respond effectively to peer reviews
