Webcast: Writing for Journal Publication: Conference Paper to Manuscript to Published Article



In this session, Dr. Tonette Rocco, editor of a new book, The Handbook of Scholarly Writing and Publishing, will discuss the elements of a manuscript being prepared for submission to a journal. She will guide participants through the process of turning a conference paper into a manuscript. She will share insights on the differences between a conference paper and a journal article, the common mistakes authors make, strategies authors can use in transforming a conference paper to a journal article, and how to follow through with editors and deal with rejection, revising, and resubmitting.
