The Culture Capital Exchange has organised an Early Career Network event called ‘How to Get Published’ in collaboration with Palgrave Macmillan. This event is for TCCE’s member universities which includes King’s.
Representatives from Palgrave will give a practical overview of the range of options for getting your research published and offer advice around approaching a publisher and pitching your ideas. Participants will also have the opportunity to have individual conversations with editors from publications covering a range of disciplines (within Humanities and Social Sciences) to either pitch ideas, or ask more detailed questions.
Date: Thursday 20 February 2014
Time: 6pm – 9pm, including networking drinks
Location: Palgrave Macmillan, The Stables, 2 Trematon Walk, Wharfdale Road, London N1 9SB
Discuss the role of peer review for scientists and the public
Sense About Science is now taking applications for a free peer review workshop in London on Friday 31st May. To apply, email Victoria (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a CV and short cover letter. Application deadline: 17th May.
Peer Review: The Nuts and Bolts is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers and will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.
Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias or fraud? What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Should reviewers remain anonymous? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?
