Internal KWI Workshop: Publishing in Peer-Reviewed Journals in English

Bojan Baća, Minwoo Jung, Hannah Richter (Organisers)

Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut Essen (KWI), Room 106, Goethestr. 31, 45128 Essen

Scholarly publication in peer-reviewed journals, particularly in English, has become increasingly important in contemporary academia in Germany and beyond. In this workshop, we have four panelists with different expertise in journal publications as editors, editorial board members, reviewers, and authors. They will discuss how to navigate the journal publication process, from selecting journals to submitting manuscripts, dissecting and responding to reviewers’ reports and editors’ decisions, and navigating different disciplinary and institutional norms, expectations, and landscapes. We’ll also address issues of publishing interdisciplinary or “area studies” scholarship in disciplinary journals, US-centrism, the issue of the English language, and more. We welcome everyone interested in publishing journal articles to attend, ask questions, and share their experiences.
