The aim of this webinar is to provide guidance on being published in academic and professional journals, with a particular focus on the IFLA Journal. The audience will gain insights on the topics of choosing a journal, the editorial and peer review process, IFLA Journal scope and content, and authors’ experience for publications through the peer review process.

The webinar will be held in four IFLA regions with local times to enable the participation in these webinars. Webinar participants will have ample opportunities in conversations with the IFLA Journal Editor, learn more from Editorial Committee members on reviewing process, and listen to accomplished authors who will share their experience through peer-review process for publications.
