Comprehending Scholarly Journal Production: An Editorial Perspective

Authors:

Abstract

This brief talk examines academic publishing, from a perspective suitable for early career researchers. Alongside some context and a short history of journal publication, it focuses on on the practical experiences, challenges and benefits which come from running a scholar-led journal. It also considers the benefits stemming from involvement within such a title for early career researchers.
