On Tuesday May 17, from 15.00 – 17.00 the NOG PhD Council organizes the publishing workshop ‘Get Published! An afternoon on the intricacies of publishing through the eyes of Gender Studies publishers’ with Suzanne Clisby (Coventry University, UK) and Eliza Steinbock (Maastricht University, NL).

This workshop gives insight into the selection and publication process of interdisciplinary journals. During the workshop, Suzanne Clisby, former Editor and current Honorary Editor of the Journal for Gender Studies, and Eliza Steinbock, member of the Editorial Board of Transgender Studies Quarterly, will condense their ample experience as authors and editors. During their example-based presentations, they will address good practices and things to avoid when deciding to publish an academic article.

They will address questions such as: how do you select a journal and what is a publication strategy? What makes a good abstract? How do you make sure your article fits the selected publication? How do you engage with harsh or even off base feedback? Moreover, the workshop will touch on similarities and differences between humanities and social sciences research and the intricacies of interdisciplinary fields.

After the presentations of the speakers, the floor will be open for questions from the participants. The event will be concluded with drinks.

The workshop is organized by the Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies (NOG) and the NOG PhD Council.

Participation is open to PhD and Master students from any disciplinary background (max. 60 students). Participation is free of charge. Please register for the workshop via email to NOG@uu.nl by May 10, 2022. The workshop will take place in person at Utrecht University at the Muntstraat 2a, in the Grote Zaal  (you will receive directions to get to the location after registering).
