On Tuesday we had our program symposium at Monmouth. I spoke on a panel discussion about academic publishing alongside a few professors and other students from my program. We had a good discussion from both the perspective of students and faculty members. The conversation was greatly enhanced by excellent questions from the audience of faculty and students.
Among the topics which came up included networking on the Internet and at conferences, following submission guidelines properly, joining listservs, and the differences between manuscript and article publishing. I got to discuss publishing in Online journals at length and also defended the academic discourse that goes on in my Twitter feed.
Here is a PDF of my brief opening statement. I don’t think anyone else had prepared statements, but I will check and encourage them to upload if they do.
