Back in March, I was asked to present a talk to Professors at Cape Breton University about finding success with Academic publishing. This was in part because of my own experience with publishing, but also in my role as Editor-in-Chief for The Canadian Entomologist. This talk took some time to put together, but it was a lot of fun to think in detail about how the publishing ‘game’ is changing, and how’s it is difficult to navigate – especially for early-career Academics.
In this post, I am pleased to share my presentation with you – I hope it is useful to some, and I hope it sparks discussion about finding success in publishing. I realize some things were missed, and the presentation itself is rather static and cannot capture the dynamic discussion that was part of the seminar given at Cape Breton.
