Getting Published - in English!

APL (Ajiken Power Lunch) is a lunchtime workshop open to public, including IDE staffs, visiting research fellows, IDEAS students, outside researchers and graduate students. This workshop provides a platform for presentation of any work in progress where we can discuss in either English or Japanese.

Those who would attend a seminar are asked to announce yourself to receptionists on your arrival at the IDE and to obtain APL Organizers' signature on your admission card after the seminar.

Getting Published - in English!


'Yes! Your manuscript has been accepted for publication…'
How do you get a publisher to write these magic words? And what happens next? David Stuligross will trace the process of getting published in English-language journals and books, emphasizing moments where scholar-authors have the greatest ability to influence a publisher’s decisions, as well as the moments where native Japanese writers might have the greatest difficulties - and how to overcome them. The talk is aimed at both young and more experienced scholars, all of whom are urged to consider the complexities of cross-cultural communication as they present themselves and their work to prospective publishers.
