This free online workshop aims to help and inform researchers in East and Southeast Asia looking to publish in philosophy journals worldwide, especially those who are at early stages of their career.

The first half of the workshop will focus on paper preparation (writing strategies, topic choice, co-authorship, feedback on drafts, proofreading and editorial services) and submission (selecting the right journal, special issues, open access, edited volumes, and the review process).

The second half of the workshop will offer insights into being a reviewer (challenges, how to get involved, the perils of Reviewer #2) and journal editorship and management (finding suitable referees, turnaround times, and tackling linguistic bias).

The workshop will be followed by a Q&A session. Participants are welcome to ask their questions via the live chat (including anonymously), or in advance of the session via email.

Participation is free and open to all. To obtain the Zoom link, please register by 5pm (Japan Standard Time) on May 23 by completing the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/5PKoxtyuSLFwgaaE6. The Zoom link will appear after registration, and a reminder email will be sent out a day before the workshop.
