Publishing for Historians: a workshop for advanced postgraduates and early career researchers in History.

Issued: Wed, 16 Mar 2016 20:06:00 GMT

Sponsored by the Royal Historical Society (RHS), the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (SGSAH), and the School of Humanities, University of Glasgow (SoH).

9.30-4.00, Friday 10th June 2016, University of Glasgow.

This workshop is for postgraduate research students and for early career researchers in History in the Scottish universities. (Additional workshops will be held elsewhere in the UK over the coming months). Academic representatives of the Royal Historical Society and the Institute of Historical Research, will provide a day-long workshop on publishing. The workshop will focus on journal articles, monographs, peer review and the editing process, and Open Access. In addition to focused presentations in these areas, students will be able to spend time with journal editors, book series editors, and RHS and IHR staff and council members, learning more about pathways to publication of research. By providing high levels of discipline-specific training for high quality publication, this workshop will better prepare participants for the academic job market, and for the REF. Those not anticipating academic careers will nonetheless benefit from detailed information about publishing historical research and scholarship.

This workshop is free for eligible PGR students (who are enrolled in SGSAH universities) and Early Career Researchers (who have not yet published a monograph, and are employed by Scottish universities or are resident in Scotland). However, places are limited and attendees must register in advance of the workshop at http://publishingforhistorians.eventbrite.co.uk

The SGSAH have provided funding for a number of travel bursaries for eligible PGR students who are registered at Scottish universities.  Application forms must be returned by noon on Friday 22nd April 2016.
