An Inside Look at Getting Published

Join us on Thursday, Oct. 15, as the McGoogan Library presents an inside look at the publishing process from those who know it best — the publishers and editors who decide what gets (and doesn’t get) published.

One of the best ways to advance your career is through scholarly publishing — yet it may also be one of the hardest, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to write.

Experts from leading publishing companies will be on hand to offer inside tips and tricks for how and where to get published, and ways to get your papers noticed. You’ll also learn about open access publishing and your rights as an author. Register online or call 402-559-5929 to reserve your spot or watch the live-stream webcast. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Brown, MA, Associate Professor and Head of Collection Services, McGoogan Library of Medicine.
