Forum for forskning 9. juni: Publishing for impact

Have you ever wondered what it means to have “impact” in your academic publishing? What does it mean for a journal to have an “impact factor”? What do you need to do to publish an article that will have high impact?

The old adage “publish or perish” is alive and well, in fact more so than ever before.  Moreover, academic careers nowadays depend on “impact” – the extent to which a scholar’s work is cited in the literature. In this presentation, Prof. Ashkanasy will explain the various indices of academic impact; how they are calculated, and how this translates into “journal impact factors.”  He will then discuss how to prepare manuscripts for publication in the high impact journals – what works, and what doesn’t.

Neal M. Ashkanasy is a Professor of Management at the UQ Business School at the University of Queensland. He received his PhD in social/organizational psychology from the University of Queensland. His current research is in leadership, organizational culture, ethics, and emotions in organizations. 

His work has been published in leading journals including the Academy of Management Journal and Review, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the Journal of Applied Psychology. He is Associate Editor for Emotion Review and Series Co-Editor of Research on Emotion in Organizations. He has served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Organizational Behavior and Associate Editor for the Academy of Management Review and Academy of Management Learning and Education.

Time: Thursday June 9, 13.00-14.30. 

Place: Room H-211, Ellen & Axel Lunds hus.

Coffee and tea is served. Welcome to the seminar!
