This session is aimed particularly at early career researchers and students seeking to publish in high quality SSCI indexed journals. The editors, from several of the Regional Studies Association suite of 5 journals will address different elements of the publishing process, how to approach writing, how to choose a journal, how to title an article, how to write the abstract and how to use social media to maximize the impact of the piece. The session will address the difficulties faced by authors without English as a first language and those whose PhD and research training has not been in the Euro/American tradition.
