The publishing roundtable will give junior scholars the opportunity to meet with experienced scholars from the field to discuss how junior scholars can strengthen their chances of getting their research published. The topics may include discussion of how to choose what journal to submit to, how the review process works, how to decide whether a manuscript is ready to be submitted for review, choosing a strong framing for the manuscript, publishing journal articles versus monographs, structuring your daily workday so that you ensure that you have time to write, and more. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions of established scholars on the panel. We hope to have an informal atmosphere and a lot of discussion.
