Elsevier Publishing and Mason Libraries are sponsoring a workshop on Academic Publishing for Graduate Students (see info below). I thought it may be of interest to our grad students.

The Academic Publishing workshop information is:
  
Title:                     Academic Publishing for Graduate Students
Who:                     Presenters will include a journal publisher, and two journal editors (Still confirming who they will be.  Dr. Menasce from Computer Science will be one of the editors.)
When:                  Tuesday, March 3, 2015, 4 - 6 PM
Where:                Instruction room in the Gateway Library (in the Johnson Center)-Must be entered through the library entrance.
 *         Enter the library and walk to the left around the Circulation desk to the stairs.
 *         Take the stairs to the 2nd floor, bearing right on the stair landing.

 Snapshot of topics to be covered:
 *         Finding the right publication for your article 
 *         Expectations for the peer review process (speed, feedback, etc.)
 *         Why you were rejected and how to deal with it
 *         What you need to know about open access publishing
 *          Ethics
  
 The first hour will be mostly presentations by the publisher and editors.  The second hour will be devoted to Q&A from attendees. 
  
 Light refreshments will be served.
  
 Let me know if you have any questions.
