Led by Christina Rozeik ACR, this one-day course will provide an introduction to publishing in conservation, and it is aimed at conservators who would like to know more about writing up their work for publication. The course will cover the process of getting your ideas into print, from choosing a good subject to finding the right outlet, and from submission to publication.
The focus of the course is primarily practical and will include tips on structuring an article, peer review, preparing images for publication, referencing... and how not to annoy an editor! Throughout the day, there will be short practical writing exercises, so it would be helpful if attendees could bring examples of works-in-progress or be prepared to talk about an idea that they have for publication. The course will include a light lunch and refreshments.
This course has a limit of 12 participants, to allow enough time for discussion and practical exercises. The course leader is happy to offer individual advice and mentoring to the participants after the course has finished.
