The workshop will address German and international publication strategies of different disciplines within the Humanities and Social Science discuss the review of ‘in progress’ texts by peers. We will focus specifically on the various publication options for the second qualification thesis (e.g. habilitation). In addition, the workshop will deal with alternative publication formats such as blogs and the challenges of interdisciplinary publications which are common in the context of collaborative research centers. Accordingly, the workshop addresses the following topics:

  • planning a strategy (implementation) individually or in a team (e.g. subproject)
  • Publication strategy and career planning: how to occupy research area(s)
  • German and/or English?
  • Monograph(s) and contributions to/editing of edited volumes
  • Journals (incl. thematic issues/guest editorships) and peer review as quality measures and visibility instruments
  • Visibility metrics (citation frequency, impact factors, rankings, indexing, other reputation criteria)
  • Open Access (at the University of Siegen) and Predatory Journals
