The Publishing Trap In-Person

Come play the Publishing Trap! This fun board game has you take on the role of a researcher in order to explore the ups and downs in the world of academic publishing and give you some insight into how to make the best decisions for you and your work throughout your career. 

Through playing the game, you will learn how to find good sources of publishing advice, why Open Access publishing is important, and how you can make sure all your hard work gets the recognition it deserves.

Key Areas Covered:

– Gain a deeper insight into the complexities of publishing academic research, from thesis to professorship
– Find out about the importance of the early decisions you make as a researcher and their consequences on your work's impact & success
– Play a fun boardgame!

Ultimately the game helps researchers to understand how money, intellectual property rights, and both open and closed publishing models affect the dissemination and impact of your research.

Be sure to book your place today!

This session will be held in the Special Collections room on the first floor of the Albert Sloman Library, Colchester Campus.
