IDGS 914: Authorship and Manuscript Preparation

This course will assist graduate students in appreciating authorship issues, journal selection, and the preparation of manuscripts for publication and peer review journals. The first part of the course will start with four overview lectures and small group discussions on why authorship matters, who should be an author, collaborators who are not authors, and selecting an appropriate journal for publication. The second part of the course will be a self-study on reviewing appropriate journals and developing the manuscript using the principles obtained during the first four lectures.
