REC Webinar: 

Developing Your Scholarly Side: Advice and Opportunities

September 12th, 2019 | 1-2 PM EDT     

In this presentation, two Editors for CHFA’s journal, Families, Systems, & Health will provide specific advice and opportunities for developing your capacity to complete scholarly work.  They will discuss the kinds of empirical papers FSH is seeking as well as the peer review process and opportunities to become a peer reviewer.  In addition, they will describe a number of ways to start or advance your development as a program evaluator, writer, and published author. 


By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  1. Discuss the visions for FSH and the kinds of research papers that are of interest.
  2. Describe the peer review process and what to do if one wants to become a peer reviewer for the journal. 
  3. Name a variety of opportunities within CFHA and FSH for advancing one's development as a program evaluator and/or as an author.
