Publishing Connect program
Publishing skills webinar series for early career researchers
By Gaelle Hull | Interim Researcher Relations Manager, Elsevier Posted on 30 April 2014
Elsevier is always keen to help new authors develop their publishing skills so that they can submit the best articles possible to your journals. You are probably already aware of our hugely popular Publishing Connect program, which last year alone brought publishing workshops to more than 30,000 researchers at institutions and conferences across the globe. You may even have taken part in such a workshop with your Publisher.
To increase the reach of this program, we are launching a series of live webinars, taking place between 8 - 22 May 2014. These events will cover all the key skills and knowledge necessary to prepare an article for submission.
Registration is open to all, and participants can select which events they want to attend.
