About the webinar

After planning your visuals and speech for your next international research conference, you’ll then have to professionally and effectively deliver your oral or poster presentation, live, to your peers. Achieving a successful and memorable performance will not only boost your confidence and reputation, but also potentially improve the quality of your contributions to your field and expand your research network. This webinar will focus on both what to say in your conference speech and how to say it, to help you optimise your presentation and keep your audience interested, engaged, and inspired.

This webinar covers:

1. Making a good first impression

2. Holding your audience’s attention

3. Tips for confident presenting

About the webinar

One of the most important decisions you will make about your research is where it will be published. To successfully disseminate your findings to as wide an audience as possible, you need to find the journal that represents the best match for your study. If you aim too high, you risk rejection and will need to spend extra time and effort in resubmitting to another journal; if you aim too low, you might fail to reach your target audience and risk your work never being cited. Therefore, it is worth getting it right the first time, but the process can be difficult to navigate, especially for early stage researchers with limited experience of journal publication.

This webinar covers:

1. Why is journal selection such an important decision?
2. What makes a good match between a paper and a journal?
3. What criteria should you use to evaluate the quality of a journal?
4. What are predatory journals and how can you avoid them?
5. What tools and help are available to assist in journal selection?
