Publishing research in English, in English-language journals, and with English-language publishers has been gaining importance as a means of reaching a wide academic audience worldwide. The course provides information on publishing your dissertation and other research in English-speaking countries. What options are there (e.g., publication of books, in journals, and as electronic files)?

Intended Learning Outcomes

  • You will be aware of the possibilities of publishing your work in English and some important differences between publishing your dissertation with Anglo-Saxon and German publishers (presentation, discussion).
  • You will know how to go about publishing your work in English and what you must expect if you intend to do so (presentation, discussion).
  • You will be familiar with aspects to consider when choosing a book publisher or journal and things to watch out for when preparing and submitting your manuscript (presentation, discussion).
  • You will have an understanding of how the peer-review process works and how to deal with it effectively (presentation, discussion).
