2:00pm to 3:00pm

Traditional journal publishing: Instead of trying the spaghetti-sticking approach or impact factors, let’s talk about the best ways to identify a journal for your manuscript, and then how to navigate the submission process. We will look at several levels of journals and discuss pros/cons of each, along with the hidden importance of cover letters and how to appeal decisions you don’t agree with.

‘Academic’ Means More Than Tenure Track (Inside Higher Ed)

April 22, 2020
The discourse about academic vs. nonacademic careers omits a category of fulfilling careers that students might be interested in pursuing, writes Gina Shereda, and we should stop framing job opportunities that way.

 

About a year ago, I made a career transition into professional and academic development support for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. I have found the work immensely fulfilling, and as with any other new position, I spent quite a bit of time in my first several months trying to catch myself up to speed on the lingo of the profession....

The Professor Is In: Stranded on the Academic Job Market This Year? (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

Higher education is reeling from this global pandemic, and everyone is stressed about budgets and money.
