Becoming an effective research scholar is challenging. Not only is it important to do research and share findings with the scientific community, but getting that research into the public domain is of increasing importance. Knowledge of the publication ‘game’ is an important tool for the effective researcher, so too is becoming embedded in relevant research networks. All too often early career researchers attend events that might not be the best use of their time and yet very simple tips, including time management, can clarify how best to target conferences. Attendees will be able to learn about publishing, networks, funding and impact from established researchers. The editor of Sociologia Ruralis will discuss strategies for getting published. This is an ideal opportunity to hone your skills, seek advice and learn more about how to be an effective researcher.
The pre-conference will not require a registration fee and lunch will be sponsored by Ruralis. It will start on Monday 13:00 and end on Tuesday at lunch (before the main conference starts).
