How to publish in top journals

This seminar is designed for researchers who would like to enhance the quality of their publications to target high-ranked journals. It highlights key differences between assessment criteria in top journals and the others in terms of research subject, presentation, data and analysis. While the presenter may use examples from his Operations Management (OM) background, he will also generalise the outcomes to make it useful for a wider range of audience. The lessons learned will apply to qualitative and quantitative research.
