In the end it all comes to this. What is the point of doing research if you can’t publish it? Furthermore, publishing is key to getting an academic job after finishing the PhD.
Unfortunately, publishing may seem challenging for young researchers.
Well, the Sussex Research Hive is here to help you with that!
As our final event of this academic year, we invited a SAGE editor to give us top tips on getting published!

After the talk, join us for drinks at the IDS Bar!
