This short course, Emerging Leaders - the manager's module, is the sister programme to the Emerging Leaders programme: leadership development for BAME staff grades, 5, 6 & 7 

UCL's flagship leadership development programme for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Staff

To forge a career in scientific, technical or medical research, you need to publish research papers in peer-reviewed journals. But the journal publishing system can be difficult to navigate. This online course has been designed by a former journal editor who knows scientific journals from many angles and can give you insider insights. You will learn how to choose the right journal for your paper and get it through peer review, including what to do if it is rejected. Topics covered include impact metrics, open access, how to get published more quickly, writing a cover letter, preprints, open vs closed peer review, and post-publication peer review. 

This course is open until 31 July 2020 and you can move through it at your own pace. There are recorded presentations, handouts, exercises, opportunities for discussion and quizzes. Cofactor trainers, including Anna Sharman, will answer questions in the discussions and share their expertise. On completion of the course you can see the Inkpath code and include the course in your portfolio. 

The course is suitable for PhD students and research staff at all levels in science, technology, engineering and medicine. It may also be relevant to those in quantitative areas of social science, but it does not cover qualitative research, humanities, arts or pure mathematics. 

Provide a short description of the course here so that students can see what it covers if they search for it and can distinguish it from modules with a similar title.
