On Friday the 4th of October the CSSR held a publishing workshop for senior postgraduates and junior academics, convened by Prof. Catriona Macleod.

•                  The various forms of publication (empirical article; theoretical article; systematic review article; article length book review; conference proceedings; book chapter; edited collection; sole authored book; text-book);

•                  Some key points in preparing most types of publication (i.e. generic issues that cut across various forms of publication);

•                  The components of the various forms of publishing listed above;

•                  How to choose an appropriate journal;

•                  The process in terms of article submission and publication;

•                  The usual structure of a book proposal;

•                  How you should respond to comments from reviewers; and

•                  Guidelines around authorship.
