Publishing Practice Series: Starting and Sustaining a Journal
Rebecca Welzenbach, Journals Coordinator, Michigan Publishing
Successful journals require careful planning and management. This workshop will take you through the process of starting a new academic journal, including an overview of planning for your journal's mission, focus, and anticipated audience. It will also cover managing an existing publication's editorial and peer review, as well as tools for ensuring that your journal can publish content in a timely and consistent fashion and via accessible, discoverable, and preservable means.

Publish, Preserve, Promote: Navigating the Present and Future of Academic Publishing
As part of the university library, Michigan Publishing serves a unique role on campus.

This October, the Institute for the Humanities is pleased to host a series of discussions and workshops to help faculty and graduate students successfully navigate the changing landscape of scholarly publishing.
