Career Development Lab


Release Date: 09/07/2020, John Warren, Margaret Moerchen, Sharon O'Reilly, Jasmine Wallace, Randy Townsend, Puja Telikicherla

Led by the director of George Washington University’s masters in publishing program, this session offers strategies for advancing a career in scholarly publishing. A discussion will explore answers to the following questions: • What are the key skills needed for successful careers in scholarly and academic publishing in the next ten years? • Has publishing shifted from a “trade”—an apprenticeship, learned mostly on the job,” to a “profession”—learning and applying a body of relevant skills and best practices? • How can diverse voices and perspectives best be integrated seamlessly into the fabric of academic publishing, and what can individuals in the profession do to welcome these new voices? Attendees participating in the live chat will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the presenters. The session welcomes experienced publishing professionals as well as students and those just beginning their publishing careers.
