An expert panel of four UWM faculty will discuss questions relevant to publishing in a pandemic. How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the way research is conducted and published? What strategies were used, what is changing now, and what future opportunities and challenges might we anticipate?

Participants will learn about the emerging ways research is conducted and published during the pandemic and whether it is becoming more collaborative for authors, more efficient for reviewers and editors, and more openly accessible for readers.

Our distinguished panelists include: 

Laura Peracchio is the Judith and Gale Klappa Professor of Marketing at the Lubar School of Business. Laura’s areas of research interest are focused on Transformative Consumer Research including food and nutrition issues, storytelling, visual persuasion, children’s consumer behavior, and language and culture. She is the immediate past Editor of the Journal of Consumer Research. 

Linnea Laestadius is an Associate Professor in the Public Health Policy and Administration area of the Zilber School of Public Health. Her research is focused on social media, novel technologies, and health. She has recently published on COVID-19 communication in online settings. 

Nadya Fouad is the University Distinguished Professor, and Mary and Ted Kellner Endowed Chair of Educational Psychology. She studies how people make career-related decisions, particularly in understanding the work choices for women and underrepresented minorities. Nadya is an editor with the Journal of Vocational Behavior. 

Nicholas Silvaggi is an Associate Professor in the Chemistry and Biochemistry department. He studies the relationship between enzyme structure and function, which is important for engineering enzymes to perform specific tasks.  

Each fall the UWM Libraries organize special discussions about academic publishing as part of our annual Fall into Research program series.

Past Fall into Research programs have brought in trainers from Web of Science, editors from Mary Ann Liebert and Springer Nature, and featured faculty panels on book publishing with SAGE, academic journal publishing with IEEE, and more. 

Since the closure of campus this springthe UWM Libraries started compiling publications by UWM faculty and staff on COVID-19 research in our Digital Commons (https://dc.uwm.edu/covid_pubs/). Those publications sparked our desire to organize a panel discussion with the researchers. We wanted to hear how journal editors and authors are navigating the unique challenges that COVID-19 has raised for scholarly publishing including how this global pandemic has altered research processes and publishing practices.  

Fall into Research is organized by the Research Services Team of the User Services Division. If you have questions about the event please contact a member of the team, Kate GanskiKathy BowesSvetlana KorolevKris Bina Midthun or Carrie Wade.
