IFLA Journal Editorial Committee: How to get published in scholarly journals

The aim of this webinar series was to provide guidance on being published in academic and professional journals, with a particular focus on the IFLA Journal. The audience gained 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 series of webinars was held in four IFLA regions with local times to enable the participation in these webinars. Webinar participants were given the opportunitiy to interact with the IFLA Journal Editor, learn more from Editorial Committee members on reviewing process, and listen to accomplished authors who shared their experience through peer-review process for publications.

Note: Materials for these workshops were developed collectively by the presenters for the benefit of the IFLA Journal workshops.
