RBHS 2018 Scholarly Publishing Symposium


This collection contains video recordings of the RBHS Scholarly Publishing Symposium, held March 14 and 15, 2018 in Newark and New Brunswick campuses, respectively. Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences welcomed experienced publishers, editors, and librarians for a wide-ranging, practical program on the scholarly publishing process. Organized by the RBHS Provosts office and Rutgers Libraries as a part of the RBHS Provosts Faculty Development Series, the goal of this event was to inform and educate RBHS faculty and graduate students about the complexities of the publishing process and to introduce them to the resources and services supporting scholarly publishing provided by Rutgers libraries. Topics covered included advice on preparing and submitting manuscripts, navigating the peer-review process, finding the right scholarly journals and publishers and avoiding predatory publishers. The symposium concluded with a panel discussion about the faculty experience during the editorial process, resulting in practical advice to early career authors.
