Workshop #1

Pre-conference Workshop #1

Delegates are invited to register for the following Pre-Conference Workshop (Registration: €60; enrollment limited to 25 participants).


“How to Get Published, p < .05″

Dr Joachim Stoeber
(Chief Editor, Anxiety, Stress, & Coping)

Wednesday, 4 August 2010, 9:00-12:00.

The workshop addresses conference participants who want to broaden their knowledge and improve their skills to increase their chances of getting published in international peer-reviewed journals. Whereas the workshop is particularly well suited for conference participants who are early in their scientific career and have little (or no) experience of getting published, participants who have an established publication record may profit too—either for their own benefit or for that of the PhD students and younger colleagues they are supervising, supporting, and mentoring.

The workshop program will cover the following topics:

  • Why publish?
  • Writing the empirical journal paper
  • Writing a review
  • Preparing and submitting manuscripts
  • Tips for better writing
  • How to read (and respond to) editorial letters
  • Revise, revise, and resubmit
  • Acceptance
  • Reviewing manuscript submissions
  • Extra: How to improve your conference paper presentation
