What is it like to publish during your PhD? How can you continue to publish after your PhD? How is it different to publish a book as opposed to journal articles? How do you navigate the process of academic writing and publishing—ranging from revision to rejection and from solo work to collaboration? What and how can we learn from the publication process? In this session, Yang Hu will begin by sharing his experiences of publishing both during and after his PhD. He will discuss potential issues to consider when publishing from one’s PhD research, possible ways to navigate (and survive and enjoy) the writing and peer review process, and some insights into solo versus collaborative research.
