Resources on book publishing for early career researchers

If you’re an early career researcher (ECR) thinking about working on your first book project, you might be in interested in our Emerald Engage platform. Emerald Engage is our online community developed specifically for those that are involved with research. It’s a closed global community where you can connect with others to discuss hot topics, share opinions, get information and resources, as well as getting invites to events.

What might be of specific interest to you is our recently launched ‘Let’s talk about' series aimed at early career researchers, which aims to equip ECRs with the tools and knowledge they need to get published. Recent instalments in this series have been videos on how to write a book proposal, and how to convert your PhD thesis into a book
