Publishing your research internationally is necessary for most scholars. They either want to get international recognition or external bodies (e.g., universities or research institutions) demand that research is published in international journals, preferably in high impact journals. European researchers often find it difficult to publish in these journals.
The workshop is going to do two things: First, it will ask the theoretical question of how one should design research for publication – issues of theory, good design, moderators and mediators. These will be covered in the first 5 sessions. Second, it will introduce you to some typical problems of European OB and I/O psychology researchers and how to deal with them. These are some of issues covered: publishing as (cultural) communication, framing the article well, producing a good story, theory, writing style and transitions, choose the right journal, response to rejection and rewrites, cutting the article right, getting cited, be a reviewer yourself. These will be covered in the second set of 5 sessions.
To make this workshop productive for you, bring the following along, if you are able to do that:
- You should bring along an English article that you are currently working on or that you have recently written (please have the Abstract and the first three or four pages copied on an overhead sheet) – THIS IS REALLY USEFUL IF YOU WANT TO GET THE MOST OF THE WORKSHOP
- Please write down the top 10 best journals in YOUR area, include the impact rate, the rejection rate, the name of the current editor (and associate editors).
- You will learn a lot, if you write a review of an article yourself. This may be an article of a colleague of yours (and s/he may have asked you to review it) or it may be an article that has already been published.
- It is helpful if you read the APA Publication guidelines, particularly the following parts: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA Guidelines), Chapters 1, 2, 6, pp. 258-272, 4th Ed.).
- If your want to read an introduction to how to write a psychology article, read: Sternberg, R.J. The psychologists companion. Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press, particularly “writing the psychology paper”.
