“Very much helpful for someone like me just embarking on a PhD project” – Paliani

“What an amazing course! I have learnt how I should first organise myself properly before start with preparing on article writing. This course really helped me to understand and distinguish between the research work and preparation of article (different tone for the article). I feel so relieved and ready to start with articles preparation. This has been the scariest thing to do, but after finishing this course, I have confidence. Thank so much Dr Peter Alkema.” – Flora

“It gives a lot of guidance and tactics on how to publish your research, absolutely valuable.” – Josephine

In this course I teach you exactly what I did to get my academic work published in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. You will complete an assignment that will get you thinking about your next article by developing a title, abstract and three options for journals that you want to get published in. I have been rejected many times from academic journals well but I have figured out why that happened and in this course I teach you how you can improve your chances of getting published.

Learn how academic publishing works and how you can become part of it so that you earn the credibility you need as a researcher. Make sure your years of hard work at a post graduate level have the maximum impact by seeing your work in a recognised journal. You will have a better chance of achieving this goal by learning about the following;

  • The changes tracker technique and a demonstration of examples from my own academic submissions

  • Different types of journals; predatory, open-access, traditional, peer reviewed and conference proceedings

  • How to research suitable journals and gain a better understanding of how you should position your work

  • Why you shouldn’t submit the same paper to multiple journals at the same time

  • How to save time in future submissions and how to plan for a re-submission

  • Being a co-author and dealing with co-authors and how to manage a resubmission with them

  • A systematic process for making changes to your article based on multiple sets of feedback

  • Other aspects of submitting a paper to a journal and additional requirements you may need to meet

  • Why writing for an examiner is different from writing for a journal and how to make this distinction

  • A systematic literature review and how you would approach this as an option for publishing

  • How to approach your own work in the best possible way to get part of it published

  • The points system for published academics and how this works for different journals

Learn from my own experience of getting rejected many times and ultimately getting published. I’ve combined all these insights and skills into a series of lessons that will teach you how to achieve the objective of getting your work published in an academic journal.
