Proposing, coordinating and publishing a successful special issue in a journal can have many advantages: it gives one the possibility to discuss a topic throughout multiple connected articles, it can help to open a new strand of research, it gives important academic experiences, and it can have a positive effect on one's career.

Based on his experience as a special issues editor, Jens Jungblut will provide some insights into important questions that one needs to address in the process of proposing and coordinating a special issue. This includes fundamental questions like why one should do a special issue, how to prepare a good proposal, how to structure the editorial process, and how to promote one's work after publication.

Event format: Following a 30-minute introductory presentation by Professor Jungblut, attendees will be invited to discuss their questions and observations for 20-30 minutes.
