A Series of Workshops Presented by the American Institute for Indonesian Studies (AIFIS) to Promote the Research of Indonesian Scholars Sponsored by the Henry Luce Foundation
With support from the Henry Luce Foundation, AIFIS is organizing a series of workshop to assist Indonesian researchers preparing manuscripts for submission to international refereed English-language academic journals. The workshops will take place between 2018 and 2020, and will focus on obstacles Indonesian scholars face when submitting English-language materials to highly ranked publications, and on strategies and methods to overcome these obstacles. Indonesian scholars face steep challenges when trying to publish and disseminate their research findings internationally, and their publications have limited international impact. Qualified mentors selected by AIFIS will help participants identify weaknesses in the structure of their manuscripts and in the presentation of information. The goal is to help authors meet the expectations of editors of international publications, and of the referees who evaluate submissions. The workshops will give participants a greater understanding of the publication process, including submission and evaluation of manuscripts, and insights into why manuscripts are accepted or rejected.
