Webinar invite: Publishing agricultural development research in social science journals

While there are many important ways to disseminate findings from agricultural development research, publishing in reputable, peer-reviewed journals is particularly important for researchers as a means to not only showcase their work but also solicit peer input, gauge how their own work compares with that of others, and enhance options for career advancement.

Deciding where to submit articles is a difficult choice, especially for early-career researchers. But all journals are not the same: What are the factors one should take into consideration while deciding on a journal?  What do editors really want?  What makes editors decide what to desk reject and what to send out for review? How should one handle referee comments?  What types of peer review are most useful—to editors, to authors, and to reviewers themselves?

Join African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) in collaboration with the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM), and the Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA) for a series of three webinars which will address these questions.
