Description

Johns Hopkins University Scholarly Publishing Symposium

On November 9th, John Hopkins University and Elsevier will offer the Johns Hopkins research community a Scholarly Publishing Symposium. The symposium will feature multiple sessions designed to provide a better understanding of scholarly publishing, including insight into how to better position your papers for acceptance. Elsevier publishers will lead the sessions with support from Johns Hopkins faculty editors. The sessions will underscore the distinct perspectives, experiences and recommendations from experts within the publishing industry and those who serve as reviewers in their fields of study.

Sessions will include a Scholarly Publishing panel discussion, a seminar outlining topics and trends affecting Scholarly Publishing and Higher Education; and publishing break-out sessions, aligned with disciplinary concentrations.

Attendees are welcome to join any or all of the sessions. When you register you will have the option to sign up for the entire day or for individual sessions.
