Description

Meet the Editors: Tips and Techniques on Article Submission for Graduate Students

For the 2018 ICMS at Kalamazoo, the Graduate Student Council of the Medieval Academy of America will host a roundtable titled ‘Meet the Editors: Tips and Techniques on Article Submission for Graduate Students.’ This roundtable will bring together four editors of peer-reviewed, academic journals to discuss approaches to publishing for graduate students. Graduate students of medieval studies, especially those who are about to enter the job market, are faced with the difficulty of being encouraged to publish while simultaneously finishing their doctoral dissertations. We will call upon participants from a wide variety of journals, ranging from the highly selective, such as Speculum and the Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, to smaller and more specialised journals, such as Medieval Feminist Forum and TEAMS. This range of journals will appeal both to later-stage graduate students who already have publication experience, and to early-stage graduate students who are interested in submitting articles for their first publications. Specific topics for this panel will vary depending on the type of journal each panelist works on, however, in general the panelists will impart information about how to turn a conference paper or dissertation chapter into an article for submission, stages of the editing process after an article has been accepted, what makes for an outstanding article submission, and other topics relevant to successfully publishing an article while still in graduate school. Each panelist will present for approximately ten minutes, reserving the rest of the time for a Q&A session.
