You will be invited to bring 3 journals (and the their editorial statement) that you see as relevant to you research, along with 3 professional organizations (and a print-out of their goals/scope) for discussion. Benoit, from Sciences Po and Princeton University -- and a good friend of our department, will discuss your submissions in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. He’ll cover such questions as:

-How to chooose journals to publish in? Is ranking the only factor?

-How important is a journal’s editorial statement?

-What’s the difference between newer and older journals?

-Does editorship matter?

-Why join professional organizations?

-What kinds of professional organizations exist, why join, and how can you get involved beyond membership?


The more participants, the more interesting the discussion, so we hope to see you there!
