IU Press, in conjunction with the Office of Scholarly Publishing and the IU Library, will host a fall series of workshops at the Scholars' Commons aimed at helping IU faculty, staff, and students navigate the world of academic publishing. This three-part workshop series is presented by book and journal publishing professionals and will cover the following topics:
How to Write a Book Proposal
This workshop is designed to address questions about approaching a publisher with your scholarly work. An experienced acquisitions editor will lead a discussion about how to size up publishers, preparing and submitting your book prospectus, honing your dissertation, and what to expect during the review process and beyond. With plenty of time for questions and conversation, this session will get you started on the road to publishing your first book.
In this workshop, IU faculty, student representatives from the Indiana University Journal of Undergraduate Research, and staff from the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education will discuss ways for undergraduates to get involved in research and publishing at IU. Campus resources and examples of successful student research projects will be shared. This will be an informal session with dedicated time for Q&A.
