Last week on Thursday we held a very successful and lively workshop with Dr Jan Ali and Mirela Cufurovic on the topic ‘How to Publish in a Q1 Journal’. This session was facilitated by Dr Eva Nisa and we had many attend. It was wonderful to see PhD students and ECR’s attend from many different universities across Australia and overseas.

Dr Jan Ali presented on how to publish in a Q1 journal, what is required for authors when choosing to publish in a Q1 journal, addressed the ins-and-outs of the publishing process from the perspective of a guest editor, and explored how to market oneself to a Q1 journal.

Mirela Cufurovic presented on the importance of collaboration, especially for PhD students and ECR’s, the importance of sticking to the journal template when publishing in a Q1 journal, and how to actively and respectfully engage in the editing process upon receiving reviewer feedback.

AAIMS would like to thank Dr Jan Ali and Mirela Cufurovic for their presentation. We have received positive feedback and hope to host more events like these in the future! A big thank you to Dr Eva Nisa for facilitating the presentations and guiding the Q&A’s. It was great to see engagement and interest from the audience.

If you attended the event and would love to leave some feedback, please email AAIMS at  We value your feedback!

All the best,
