University of Leeds
Sponsored by the Royal Historical Society (RHS), the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRCoAH), and the School of History, University of Leeds.
This workshop is for postgraduate research students and for early career researchers in History, primarily those in WRCoAH and other northern universities. (Additional workshops will be held elsewhere in the UK over the coming months.) Academic representatives from WRCoAH universities, the Royal Historical Society and the Institute of Historical Research will provide a day-long workshop on publishing. The workshop will focus on the editorial process and peer review, journal articles, monographs, and Open Access. In addition to focused presentations in these areas, students will be able to spend time with journal editors, book series editors, senior academics and RHS and IHR staff, learning more about pathways to publication of research. By providing high levels of discipline-specific training for high quality publication, this workshop will better prepare participants for the academic job market, and for the REF. Those not anticipating academic careers will nonetheless benefit from detailed information about publishing historical research and scholarship.
