In this course, students are introduced to the “publication game”. The course deals with thoughts about how to generate research ideas and how to plan a research project, how to position a paper and how to manage the R&R process. The pros and cons of different publication strategies are discussed and compared to the recent development of the German university system and the worldwide job market. Students will also learn on which criteria editors and reviewers base their decisions about a submission. Thereby, the course helps to understand and to manage the publication process.
