Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: PhD Students, Staff, Researchers and Library staff

You’ve completed your experiments and want to publish your work in a peer-reviewed journal. Are you wondering where to start? Do you know where you find relevant information quick and easy? Do you want to learn how to structure your paper, or what to include in a cover letter? Is the submission and peer-review process a mystery to you and do you know why editors accept (or reject) papers? Do you understand the importance of ethical issues? Perhaps you’ve submitted your work before and are in need of some guidance interpreting and responding to reviewer comments.


If this sounds familiar to you, register now for this Elsevier Researcher Academy Online Seminar and get some tips from the Publisher. This seminar will benefit both early career and established researchers.
