A podcast from the Editor-in-Chief of Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal; a scholar-led, open access, early career focussed title. The podcast highlights scholarly publication developments and participation calls alongside occasional discussions with contributors and editorial team members.
In this episode we take a walkthrough the articles in the latest (June 2020) issue of the Exchanges journal. Alongside highlighting their themes, the editor provides a personal take on what excited him most about each article. You can read the latest issue by following this link: https://doi.org/10.31273/eirj.v7i3 or searching for the Exchanges Journal at the University of Warwick
In this episode we talk to guest Pierre Botcherby, a doctoral researcher in History, about the Then and Now: Arts at Warwick Project. This project is currently collaborating with the Exchanges journal towards producing a future special issue featuring the related work of students and established researchers. Pierre talks about his own research background, and how this led him to interact with the project, as well as his hopes for the submissions for the issue.

In this episode we look at some of the common author errors that lead to submitted manuscripts being declined by academic journals. After briefly examining why journals will decline work, the episode moves to consider some advice on how academic authors can avoid their manuscripts falling by the wayside. The episode is, as always, illustrated in the light of the experiences of the scholar-led, open access, Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal.
In this second episode, we look at the kinds of articles that the Exchanges interdisciplinary journal considers for publication, along with some guidance about what to think when writing them. The episode also lightly explores the difference between our peer reviewed and non-reviewed works.
