University of Illinois Press Events Calendar
Thursday, April 15, 2021
In this panel, we will talk with the people that know the most about the life cycle of your article and how you can understand its impact. Additionally, we will take a closer look at some of the metrics used to measure impact and ask whether they are useful tools for evaluating scholarship in the humanities.
This panel will feature practical tips on virtual events, and address how to partner with your press to raise your book's profile, how to plan out your publicity campaign if you have a forthcoming book, and strategies for pitching op-eds.
