Representatives from international and academic publishing houses will be invited to the event together with academics with experience of publishing in Germany and internationally. Early career researchers will thus gain insights into the multiple stages involved in producing a successful publication record – from what makes a successful book proposal, through positioning research within academic disciplines and passing peer review, to finding a publisher and dealing with editors. The round table is thus relevant to those seeking to produce a monograph, work as editors or contributors to edited volumes, or submit articles to leading peer-reviewed journals. It will also be fruitful for those thinking of a career outside academia in the world of publishing. The goal is to provide a broad spectrum of wisdom about the publishing world to help our target population achieve their publishing and career goals.
The round table provides a space to reflect upon earlier discussion and also address the present and future of publishing in a globalized academia. The round table will begin with each discussant summarizing the findings from the practice-oriented first part of the workshop (in 5-7 minutes). After establishing common ground for the further discussion, speakers will be encouraged to address points brought up in the World Café to the larger forum. Additionally it is our hope to showcase challenges associated with open access publishing along with the possibilities for translation, and crossovers between academic and popular science or academia and journalism.
