Following The Culture Capital Exchange’s enormously popular How to Get Published in 2014, a collaborative event with Palgrave Macmillan for Early Career Researchers, TCCE invited all member researchers to a second collaboration, Meet the Editors.
Representatives from Palgrave gave a practical overview of the range of options for getting research published and offered advice around approaching publishers and pitching ideas. ECRs were provided the opportunity to have individual conversations with editors from publications covering a range of disciplines within Humanities and Social Sciences, during which they could pitch ideas and ask more detailed questions. ‘Meet the Editors’ was exceptionally well received by researchers from TCCE member universities and this second collaboration with Palgrave Macmillan provided a valued and exciting opportunity to all participants.
