This workshop is focused on helping attendees who seek to publish their manuscripts in peer-reviewed academic journals, particularly anthropology journals. The workshop will be coordinated by the editor-in-chief of American Ethnologist, who during his tenure has reviewed hundreds of manuscripts on a wide range of topics. Topics to be covered include: choosing an appropriate journal for your manuscript; understanding the importance of submission guidelines; demystifying the process of peer review; tips for responding to reviewers' comments and revising your manuscript; what to do if your manuscript is rejected outright; and tips for promoting your work once it is in print.
