Upcoming event Part of series: BERA-CERA Academic Publishing Webinar Series 2021

BERA-CERA Academic Publishing Webinar Series 2021 – 1



The BERA-CERA Academic Publishing Webinar Series 2021 are targeted at PGRs and ECRs who are relatively new to the ‘Academic Publications World’ and who lack experiences in academic publishing and peer reviewing. There are three webinars in this series, including two on academic publishing from a senior researcher’s and an early career researcher’s perspectives respectively, and one on peer reviewing. The webinars will introduce new writers to general principles and techniques of writing for publications, as well as to navigating peer reviewing for academic journals.
