Are you new to publishing your work? Do you have questions you need answered about the publishing process? This series provides University of Missouri authors with opportunities to hear from major academic publishers about their processes as well as learn from librarians and campus colleagues about important trends and issues related to academic publishing.

Sept 24: Publishing an Academic Book- What Authors Need to Know

Do you plan to publish a book some day? Do you have questions about the book publishing process? David Rosenbaum, Director of the University of Missouri Press, Andrew Davidson, Editor in Chief, and Carli Conklin, Associate Professor and author of Pursuit of Happiness in the Founding Era: An Intellectual History (2019), will share information and advice on the book publishing process with new and aspiring authors.

Sept 10: Choosing a Citation Manager

A citation manager helps organize PDFs and notes as well as format citations in thousands of styles. Unfortunately, there is no best citation manager. The three citation managers the library teaches--Zotero, EndNote, and Mendeley--all have different strengths and weaknesses. This class previews each citation manager and explains the differences between them.

Developed in coordination with the MU Graduate School and the MU Office of Undergraduate Research.
