The Publishing Process

The scholarly publishing process

New to publishing? This Guide provides an overview of scholarly publishing and peer review:

  • avoiding 'predatory' publishers.
  • deciding why and where to publish your research
  • writing and formatting in the preferred style of the research source (e.g., journal, book/publisher, conference)
  • understanding author responsibilities
  • submitting your article and what happens in the editorial review
  • peer review and peer review training opportunities
