Dr. Sarah McCarroll | Breakout Session
"I Have Something to Say: Breaking into Academic Publishing"
About this session: This session demystifies the editorial process of academic publishing. We'll discuss expectations for articles, chapters and books, how to target the right journal or press, what the submission and editorial process looks like, and some dos and don'ts of preparing your work for a wider audience via publication.
