A Guide to Academic Book Writing and Publishing

Session Agenda

‘Publish or Perish’ is a popular axiom in the scholarly community. For increased impact and recognition as knowledge experts, researchers often consider writing a book or a book chapter, either independently or under the guidance of their mentor. However, writing an academic book or a chapter could turn out to be a daunting task for early-career researchers. This webinar conducted in collaboration with IntechOpen, the world’s leading publisher of Open Access books, will break down the journey of writing and publishing an academic book into easy steps for researchers. It will also give practical tips to prospective as well as established authors for the effective promotion of their books.

Through this webinar, researchers will learn:

  • Different types of academic books
  • Insights into the pre- and post-publication steps
  • How to publish an edited volume?
  • How to write a compelling academic book?
  • Tips for authors to promote their books
