Where do you start? What do you need to include? In this webinar we will help you with practical tips and expert advice on what makes a cover letter stand out.

Hosted by SAGE’s Jessica Lipowski and featuring a Q&A session with two prestigious researchers and editors in their field of study, the webinar will provide essential guidance for anyone hoping to get published in an academic journal.
