Workshop Leader: Dafna Lemish, Professor, Department of Communication, Tel Aviv University, Israel
Goal: This workshop will explore two of the most important endeavors engaged in by academics: Submitting and reviewing manuscripts for academic journals. While the skills necessary for these two challenging activities are in many ways complementary, they are also often completely unrelated; that is, being an excellent reviewers does not necessarily prepare you for submitting good manuscripts, and visa versa. Accordingly, we will discusses the following questions: How to decide which journal to submit your manuscript? How to handle revisions? Whether to argue with the editor? And what about reviewing, what does an editors and an author really look for in a review? When should you refuse and when you shouldn't dare to do so? How does one write a good review? And why is it important? Creating and charing knowledge is a collective effort, and in this workshop, we will discusses your participation in this community and how to excel in doing so.
