In this course I teach you exactly what I did to get my academic work published in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. You will complete an assignment that will get you thinking about your next article by developing a title, abstract and three options for journals that you want to get published in. I have been rejected many times from academic journals well but I have figured out why that happened and in this course I teach you how you can improve your chances of getting published.
Learn how academic publishing works and how you can become part of it so that you earn the credibility you need as a researcher.
