Academic Publishing (video series)

Learn what you need to know to succeed in academic publishing. In this series of 10 videos, sociologist Claire Renzetti, Professor of Sociology at University of Kentucky and former chair of the ASA Committee on Publications, will tell you how to prepare your manuscript, choose a journal, deal with R&Rs and rejections, and turn your dissertation into a book, among several other topics. Professor Renzetti will give you the knowledge -- and confidence -- to succeed in academic publishing.

Working with the Media (video series)

This five-part series will help you share your research with the media. Viewers will learn strategies to feel comfortable and competent at communicating their work and ideas to non-academic audiences through the media. The series provides information on message, audience, and the rules of media.
