Publishing Workshop Poster_Banner (1)


This workshop aims to discuss the value of publishing for graduate students early in their career and how to do so. In the first half of the workshop, we will hear from two CIPSS Political Science Professors about the “nuts and bolts” of publication for graduate students. In the second half of the workshop, a panel of graduate students will share their experiences with publishing and reflect on what advice they would give to themselves were they just publishing now for the first time. Each portion of the workshop will have a question and answer period for the speakers.
