Career Development Lab: Professional Development and Transferable Skills in Scholarly Publishing

This career development lab features a networking opportunity and panel-audience discussion on the profession of scholarly publishing, developing your career, and mentoring others. We’ll address key questions such as: What are the key skills needed for successful careers in scholarly and academic publishing in the next ten years? Has publishing shifted from a “trade”—an apprenticeship, learned mostly on the job—to a “profession”—learning and applying a body of relevant skills and best practices? What is the value of a master’s in publishing, an MBA, or other graduate degree? How can diverse voices and perspectives best be integrated into the fabric of academic publishing, and what can later-career individuals do to welcome and mentor these new voices? We will engage participants in some of these questions in an interactive format, and will actively seek input and comments from participants. 

This event welcomes both students and early career professionals AND those further on in their publishing career.
