ASEEES Webinars

Working with our committees, members and other organizations, ASEEES offers webinars throughout the year to help members engage in professional development by providing information on research methodologies and sources, teaching methods and resources, publishing, funding, and careers in and outside academia.

2019 Webinars

September 11, 2019: 12EST “How to Get your Paper Published in EEPS or other International Journals”

Presented by East European Politics and Societies and Cultures (EEPS) editorial staff: Wendy Bracewell (Editor), Krzysztof Jasiewicz (Editor), Andrzej Tymowski (Member of the Editorial Committee)

EEPS receives a growing number of submissions from scholars in the region (which we define as the area that lies between Germany to the west and Russia to the east, and includes the Baltic region and the Balkans, but not Greece or Turkey). This trend is fueled in part by pressures from the bureaucracies that oversee arts and sciences in the post-communist states, but, above all, by the growing quality and diversity of research conducted by scholars across the region.

However, many submitted papers, even if based on methodologically sound research on important issues, do not conform to the conventions and standards typically followed by international journals. The issue is not the quality of academic English but the character and structure of the manuscripts.

Attendees will learn about the standards expected of submissions to EEPS and similar international journals and about typical shortcomings and misunderstandings. The aim is to improve the acceptance rate of submissions from the region by EEPS and other area-studies or discipline-specific international journals.
