Module 1 Lesson 3: An in-depth academic publishing course for young researchers

The life jacket you need before you plunge into academic publishing

Dear Author,

Are you new to the world of academia? If yes, I am sure you are feeling slightly overwhelmed. Many people enter academia with the idea that they would spend most of their time doing exciting new research. Did you feel the same way and are you really doing this or is the reality different?

While research is definitely the most important aspect, there are some other equally important activities that a researcher has to perform. The most important of these is publishing your research in academic journals. This can be a daunting task for people who are new to academia. This course is designed to give you a better understanding of the overall publishing process so that you are not feeling at sea.

I hope that by the end of this course, you will be able to

  • Perceive the importance of writing and publishing your research
  • Understand the journal publication process
  • Learn about peer review and its different forms
  • Identify the types of articles that journals publish

The course uses different learning tools like videos, SlideShare presentations, quizzes, etc. to make learning more enjoyable for you. In case you have any doubts or questions during the course, we’ll always be there to help you. So let’s begin!

Happy learning!
