DARG Postgraduate Workshop 2013: Publishing and disseminating your research

Friday 26 April 2013, University of Manchester

The RGS-IBG Developing Areas Research Groups’s next postgraduate workshop is a great opportunity for new researchers to learn more about getting their ideas out there!

The focus is on publishing and disseminating ‘developing areas’ research, both in academic journals and beyond the academy – through press and broadcasting, social media, non-academic publishing and community engagement. The workshop combines presentations from a range of professionals, alongside postgrads talking about their experiences, with practical advice and lively discussions.

The workshop is on Friday 26 April 2013 at the University of Manchester. Registration opens at 9.00 for a 09.30 start, and the workshop ends at 17.00.


Places cost £12 and must be booked and paid for by Friday 5 April 2013. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, and will be confirmed upon payment. Participants must be members of DARG but can join when they book. The annual student-rate subscription is £2. Membership is free of charge to RGS-IBG Postgraduate Fellows.

Travel bursaries are available for postgraduate contributors willing to talk for 10 minutes about their own experiences (good and bad!) of publication and dissemination. Please ask for details when you book. Lunch and tea/coffee are included in the workshop fee. There will be optional drinks and a restaurant dinner in the evening, not included in fee.

Getting Published in Social Science Journals – Day Course

Tutors: Rachel Brooks and Paul Hodkinson
Date and time: 14th Feb, 9.30am-4.30pm
Location: Department of Sociology, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

Getting your work published in journals is an essential part of academic life. This one-day course will offer a friendly and supportive forum in which to find out more about how academic journals work and how to increase your chances of getting articles published. The course will provide you with a good understanding of: the journal process, from submission to publication; what referees will be looking for when they review your article; how to respond to conflicting referee reports; and what you need to consider when deciding where to submit your work. It will also provide guidance and discussion about the characteristics of a good journal article, and how to make sure that your article is noticed once it has been published.

Subsidised places available for students.

RGS-IBG Developing Areas Research Group (DARG): Postgraduate workshop 2013

Postgraduate Workshop 2013: Publishing and disseminating your research

DARG’s next Postgraduate Workshop will focus on publishing and disseminating your work, both in academic journals and beyond the academy, e.g. through the media, social media, NGOs and policy-makers. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about getting your research to a wider audience.

We’re looking for current or recently graduated PhD students willing to share their experiences (good and bad!) of publication and dissemination, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Your role will be to talk for up to 10 minutes about your experiences, and help facilitate lively and informative discussion.

The workshop will take place on Friday 26 April 2013 at the University of Manchester.

If you’d like to take part as a speaker, please send us a few lines about your experiences by 30 November 2012, mentioning your PhD topic, what sort of publication and/or dissemination you’ve done, whether this was a collaborative venture or your own initiative, and what resulted.
