Understanding the Journal Ecosystem and Getting Published in Top Journals

Have you thought, what really is a top journal, how is a top journal defined, and how do journal ranking lists really work?

Professor Geoffrey Wood, Dean and Professor of International Business at the Essex Business School will present a two-part talk to discuss all these issues, on an interactive basis, and feedback from audience members will be sought. Professor Wood will then explore strategies for getting published in top journals, insider tips, and how to survive the revise and resubmit process.
