The RGS-IBG, the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum (PGF), and the PGF Midterm Organization Committee are working together to explore how we can provide online spaces that give you the opportunity to get a little bit of that ‘conference feeling’, in light of many conference cancellations and postponements this year.
We’re focusing on professional development for postgraduates, sharing opportunities and resources with one another, and building a community of postgraduates in these challenging times. Find out more about PGF@Home.
Publishing in Geography
We’ve published a series of blog posts on academic publishing by Phil Emmerson, Managing Editor: Academic Publications (RGS-IBG), aimed at postgraduates and ECRs:
- Publishing in Geography (Part 1): What, why, when, where and how?
- Publishing in Geography (Part 2): Preparing, submitting, and revising a manuscript
- Publishing in Geography (Part 3): My article has been accepted, what’s next?
We’re delighted to announce a live Q&A session with Phil and others on the theme of publishing in geography. This will take place online on Tuesday 16 June at 15.00 BST.
You will need to register for the Q&A in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
