ABOUT THE RESOURCE

This ‘How to get published’ webinar gives you some great tips on increasing your chances of having a journal article accepted for publication. Turner talks about key factors that impact the chances of acceptance, such as ensuring the quality of your research methodology, choosing the right journal, preparing your manuscript, and responding appropriately to the peer-review process. By the end of the webinar you have some top tips that you can use as you prepare your research for publication, and some helpful resources to help you on your journey.
