Scholarly Writing for Conservation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Does your conservation project need some exposure at the national and international scale? Would you like to get the word out about the conservation work you do, but do not know how to begin to write a paper for a journal? Then this pre-session is for you. This informative session will help you organize and summarize your work in order to meet the strict requirements of a peer-reviewed journal article.

The JAIC editorial board wants to encourage and provide guidance to potential authors wishing to submit articles to our journal. Our goal is to assist in the development of skills needed to write and submit journal manuscripts to improve the dissemination of research, treatments, and enhanced knowledge sharing. Scholarly communication, at both the national and international levels, is a skill that is not often prioritized by conservation programs, while the ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals is an essential part of communicating research and results, which is necessary for professional development.

Within this framework, the pre-session will take participants through the process of planning, preparing, and writing a manuscript for submission to a journal in the conservation field, with a clear emphasis on JAIC. 

The session will consist of short presentations, a roundtable discussion with Q&A, and practical exercises with feedback from speakers. Attendees can bring research ideas and/or basic outlines to share for discussion by the editors.

Planned speakers also include Michele Derrick (former JAIC editor-in-chief), Robin Hanson, and Ellen Pearlstein.
