Lunchtime publishing sessions for Cambridge Postdocs
Cambridge University Press, part of the University of Cambridge, is pleased to invite Cambridge Postdocs to a series of sessions about publishing. Experienced publishers from a range of academic areas will aim to answer your questions about changes in international academic publishing, submitting journals articles and book proposals, REF criteria and peer review. They will also give practical guidance on ensuring that a submission has the best possible chance of acceptance.
These informal lunchtime sessions will be hosted by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the Postdoc Centre @ 16 Mill Lane. They will be ‘brown bag’ style (bring your own lunch), with tea and coffee provided. The first, ‘Academic Book Publishing in the Humanities’ took place on 3 February. Watch out for new sessions, which will be posted on the OPDA website and PdOC Society newsletters.
