Publisher agreements can be perplexing and prevent you from sharing your research as openly as you may want in the future and in line with increasing Open Access requirements in academia. In this session we will go into:

  • the small print of publishing agreements and discuss what you need to look out for
  • what happens at each step of the publication process
  • how to find agreements and policies of your potential publishers before you submit research and why it is important to check this
  • top tips to make sure your publishing deal helps you share your research as widely as possible

We will be joined by a researcher who will share experiences (good and bad) of the publishing process and there will be tips from a journal editor's perspective.
