Guides to Getting Published are a gratis service. All we need should you wish it to take place is a room for around two hours (usually a lecture room big enough for all interested parties to be accommodated) with a PC and a media projector.
If you think that an Emerald Guide to Getting Published would be of use to the post-graduate students and academics at your institution please contact Emma Stevenson and to find out if there is a presenter available in your area.
Examples used in Guides to Getting Published can be applied to a wide variety of subject areas. We can tailor the presentation to suit your subject area at your request.
The Guide to Getting Published can be tailored to suit your individual needs. The format of a standard presentation is detailed below:

• advice for authors on preparing and submitting articles
• the review process
• overview of resources for authors.
The presentation is always followed by a question and answer session which lasts around 30 minutes.

If we know in advance who the audience are we will tailor the presentation to suit the needs of the participants.
Yes, we can help in a number of ways such as branded posters, invitations and posting the event on our upcoming events section of the Guide to Getting Published webpages.
