The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) will hold a webinar May 11 to help university faculty and students in Africa and Asia learn more about how to publish research manuscripts. The third webinar in HC3’s University Initiative series, How to Get Published?A Conversation with Jouurnal Editors will be a roundtable discussion among editors of communication journals.
May 11, 2015 11AM - 12 PM EDT
During a university needs assessment in 2013, HC3 identified some of the greatest challenges universities in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia face, including limited access to current literature and limited opportunities for scholarly publication. The webinar will provide advice on how to improve the ability of faculty and students in Africa and Asia to generate publishable research manuscripts. Participating editors will be asked to describe the mission of their journal and the types of manuscripts of interest to their readers, the nature of the review process, and guidelines or suggestions for authors that might encourage or facilitate more quality manuscript submissions. Doug Storey, PhD, director for Communication Science and Research at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs, will moderate.
