Bringing Research to the World: Mapping Your Publishing Plans
Alex Westcott Campbell, publishing editor for the humanities and social sciences in Southeast and East Asia at Springer Nature (Singapore), will give a presentation on Wednesday 18th July at 9am to discuss publishing avenues under the Springer imprint.
She will discuss the types of Springer products, and provide an overview of the publishing process, detailing the key steps in the book proposal that will lead to publication, with an overview of Search Engine Optimisation tips for editors and authors to ensure higher visibility for their published research. The talk will also be relevant to graduates nearing completion of their PhDs, as she will demarcate the differences between the dissertation and the monograph, with guidance on how to turn the thesis into a book. The presentation will address citation indexes, journals, and Open Access publishing options, and will also outline the benefits of publishing with Springer, running through the available author services, such as language editing and Bookmetrix.
The presentation will conclude with a Q&A session and attendees are welcome to discuss their research activities one-on-one for the hour following the presentation.
The talk will be relevant to all researchers in the humanities and social sciences, across subject disciplines.
