July 9, 2020: The Centre for Hospitality and Tourism Research (CHTR), WGSHA, organized a lecture session on “Publishing Tips in Tourism and Hospitality Journals”. The resource person of the session was Dr. Manuel Alector Ribeiro. The centre is proud to have a continued research collaboration with Dr. Manuel Alector Ribeiro from School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey, UK and Dr. Kyle Maurice Woosnam, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, University of Georgia, USA. This International research collaboration supported CHTR to publish research articles in top tourism journals. It is an ongoing collaboration where the researchers are in the process of developing research papers for potential publications in the near future.

Today Dr. Ribeiro delivered one of the very comprehensive, informative and useful sessions on publication tips. The session included some of the very important and crucial aspects of publication that included why publication is important for academicians, what are the deadly sins, various challenges, proper positioning before writing, preparation before writing, author guidelines to be followed, and choosing the right journal.  The session also covered the structure of a research article from title to acknowledgement with comprehensive details.  Dr Ribeiro touched upon some of the very subtle but most important aspects to be considered while trying to publish in good journals such as dealing with reviewers, how to address reviewer comments, method to be followed while reviewing an article, accepting critical reviews with grace and not to get emotional with negative comments and rejections.  Team WGSHA appreciates the efforts by Dr. Ribeiro in conveying the process in detail  and making the budding researchers aware of the hard work, patience, and perseverance expected while trying to publish articles in major journals.
