Event description

Description

“Publish or perish!” is a commonly heard admonishment to Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students and Early Career Researchers (ECR's). The pressure to publish good work in high quality journals seems to be increasing, and the ability to publish appears to be a key criterion for jobs and grants.

But how does one publish their work? When is a paper “good enough”? What kinds of outlets and avenues are appropriate for an education researcher? How much do journal prestige, impact factor and the h-index really matter? What about the move to assessing impact and engagement? We discuss these questions and more at an interactive panel session aimed at HDR and ECRs undertaking education research.

Panellists Dr Emma Rowe, Alfred Deakin Professor Jill Blackmore, and Associate Professor Phill Dawson will share their wisdom on publishing – both from the author and editorial perspective, and within traditional journals and more contemporary outlets. The panel will be hosted by Dr Joanna Tai, Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE), who submitted her first DECRA application this year.

There will also be time for questions and discussion. If you have a burning question, please submit it as part of your registration!

If you are unable to join us at Deakin Downtown, REDI capacity building session will be hosted at the following campuses via virtual meeting point (VMP):

  • Burwood campus: Burwood Corporate Centre (BCC), Level 2, Building BC
  • Geelong (Waurn Ponds) campus: Video Meeting Room IC3.108
  • Warrnambool campus: Video Meeting Room D2.30

This seminar is open to anyone with an interest in education research.
