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.

Emerging infectious diseases course open to campus

Ali S. Khan, M.D., M.P.H., dean of the UNMC College of Public Health, will be teaching a course this fall on emerging infectious diseases. The classes will be held on Fridays between 10 a.m. and noon in Room 2001 of the Maurer Center for Public Health. A total of 13 classes will be held, with the first class on Aug. 28 and the final class on Dec. 4. Click here for a complete list of the classes and guest speakers.

The classes will feature a wide variety of topics and will essentially be taught by knowledgeable guest lecturers. Although the classes are intended primarily for Master of Public Health students, Dr. Khan wants the greater UNMC community to also have access to these speakers and the information they will share.

Dr. Khan is inviting faculty, staff and students of UNMC to attend any of the lectures that would be of interest. If anyone would like the assigned readings or presentation slides for a lecture, contact Matthew Bosley, the teaching assistant for the course, at 402-559-4960.
