Scholarly Publishing


Another avenue to publishing is presenting a paper at a conference.  Conference presenters are usually invited to publish their presentations in the conference proceedings. Presenting is a great way to network and begin making a name for yourself in the field.  Not ready to submit a paper?  Why not consider submitting to a poster session as a first step!

The following professional associations sponsor annual meetings and publications, put out calls for papers, and are valuable resources for scholarly networking.
