Workshop: Publishing Open Access in Development Studies Journals

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 from 11:15-13:00h, Room: Hødden

Open Access is rapidly changing academic publishing. University libraries and academic funders in many (European) countries negotiate new deals with publishers to realize full Open Access academic publishing by 2020. For readers with no access to university libraries (which is often the default in low-income countries) this is an important step. But moving from subscription-based publishing to Open Access also has huge implications. The workshop invites editors, publishers, authors, and readers of development studies journals to discuss new ideas to deal with these challenges.

Organizer: Kees Biekart (Development and Change)

Mentoring Workshop  for PhD students and early career researchers

Wednesday, 23 August from 9:00-10:45h

This mentoring workshop organized and chaired by Professor May Tan-Mullins (Professor in International Relations at Nottingham University, the Dean of Graduate School and the Director of Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies) is a great opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers.

The workshop will address some of the career development issues regarding publishing, career selection, importance of conference and networking, and home-work balance. It will begin with a concise presentation on the various topics raised, followed by substantial time allocated to a question and answer session. This workshop also presents an opportunity for fellow PhD students and early careers to network as there will be an informal drinks session after the workshop.

Participation is free of charge for registered conference participants but limited to 25 participants and pre-registration on first come first served basis is necessary.

Organizer: Professor May Tan-Mullins (Professor in International Relations at Nottingham University, the Dean of Graduate School and the Director of Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies)
