Things You Can do to Increase or Decrease the Chances of Journal Publication | JSOM 1.502 | September 19th, 2013, 3:00 PM | Faculty Presentation Series

We've all heard the saying 'publish or perish.' To get grants, you need publications to prove you have the experience to do the research project. If you aren't applying for a grant, publications prove your capabilities and productivity to your department head and dean and increase your visibility to others in your field. The good news is there are things you can do to improve your chances of getting accepted by a journal and Dr. Alex Piquero will tell you what they are. Dr. Piquero, Ashbel Smith Professor of Criminology has published over 250 peer-reviewed articles in the areas of criminal careers, crime prevention, theory, and methods. His research has been cited over 11,000 times and he has been ranked as the #1 criminologist in the world since 1996 in terms of scholarly publications. In addition to his co-editorship of the Journal of Quantitative Criminology, he is on a dozen editorial boards of journals in criminology, psychology, and sociology. reSearch Profile

Responding to Rejection and Reviewer Feedback | FN 2.102 | October 16th, 2013, 2:00 PM | Faculty Presentation Series

Research faculty know when writing a research proposal, the odds of being awarded on the first attempt are significantly low. However, when a proposal is not selected for funding, it is easy to become discouraged or angry when reading the reviewer's responses and suggestions. The usual advice you may hear after receiving your notice of rejection is to put the reviews in a drawer, calm down for a few days and then return to the comments with a clear and open mind. What you do when you return to those comments is important for moving your work forward and planning a re-submission. Successful researchers Dr. A. Dean Sherry, Dr. Sandra Chapman and Dr. Roderick Heelis have experienced the sting of proposals being returned unfunded, and will tell you how they have (and do) handle reviews and rejection, how they analyze the reviewer's comments and how they use that analysis to determine their next steps in their work.  reSearch Profile
