Professor Thomas Garavan (University of Limerick) will host an Insider’s Guide to Getting Published in International Journals on behalf of Emerald Insight. Insider’s Guides are aimed at helping authors progress successfully through the various stages from pre-submission of the manuscript, to revision and, finally, publication. The points made in this presentation are not only applicable to Emerald publications but also to other international publishers. During the Insider’s Guide to Getting Published we will look at the criteria governing the selection of academic papers for publication in international journals and the resources Emerald makes available to authors to support them in the writing process.

The following points will be covered:
• How to get started
• How to target your work more effectively
• What editors and reviewers actually look for
• The five key questions that make or break a paper
• How to peer review your own work
• The secrets of revision
• Beyond publishing (refereeing, book reviewing, advisory board membership, etc.)
