In June 2015, the School of Arts & Sciences hosted “Meet the Editors,” a publishing workshop designed to support faculty in the dissemination of their research and scholarship. For two days, guest editors Julia Kostova (Oxford University Press) and Patrick Alexander (The Pennsylvania State University Press)–acquisitions editors in the humanities and social sciences–coached faculty members preparing book and journal manuscripts for publication. The workshop addressed a variety of topics ranging from revising the dissertation, writing a winning proposal, contracts and royalties, and dealing with peer review reports to approaching publishers and giving a compelling elevator speech.
Here are some photos from the event
