TDCE’s take on Research Dissemination, Publishing and Conference Presentation
Inbhear is a research event focused on publication and the dissemination of research for postgraduate and early career researchers in the arts and humanities. TDCE’s workshop for this event focuses on conference presentations and academic journal publications as two popular forms of postgraduate research dissemination. This workshop also tackles some of the challenging aspects of the process, from abstract submission to crafting and delivering a conference paper in a limited timeframe to an uninitiated audience. The second part of this workshop considers the writing of academic journal articles as another suitable pathway for research publication and dissemination. Moreover, an outlook will be given on research impact, metrics and opportunities for Open Access publishing.
