GOMD 2018 Publishing Workshop


You’ve done the research. You want your published work to be cited.  To be cited it must be read. To be read it must be interesting and discovered. To be discovered it must be promoted, and indexed on Google, Baidu, Web of Science, Scopus, etc. To be indexed it must be written so that software can determine the most important parts of your work. And it must still be interesting enough to be read by other researchers.


This may seem like a process that is out of your hands. It is not; you can make an impact and we can help show you the way.


Publishing in American Ceramic Society Journals: Writing for Search Engine Optimization and Self Marketing, sponsored by Saint-Gobain, explores your role in getting your efforts recognized by the scientific community.


Mario Affatigato, Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Applied Glass Science will lead a discussion on writing papers with titles, abstracts, and body text designed not only to be published, but also to be discovered, read and cited. Examples of actions authors can take to promote their articles will also be presented.


This informative publishing workshop takes place Wednesday, May 23, 2018, from noon to 1:15 p.m., in conjunction with Glass & Optical Materials Division Meeting (GOMD 2018), in San Antonio, TX, USA.   Box lunches will be served.
