Get your name out there. Publish or perish. The pressure is on and you want you want to understand what it takes to get published in high-quality technical journals. It can seem scary to put yourself out there. You want to look as professional and intelligent as you are in your school work or career, and you want and need to get your research into the hands of employers and tenure committees. But how?
Explore the opportunities for and the process of getting published. The panelists, all highly accomplished authors and editors of ceramic and glass research journals, will cover advice for students and young professionals and discuss the benefits and challenges of submitting research papers in the appropriate journal with the appropriate formatting. Key topics include demonstrating original, high-impact work, writing for the audience (e.g. English language editing), the ethical problem of plagiarism, making articles more memorable, and technical issues with manuscripts, such as image resolution. The panelists will discuss online tools provided by Wiley, ACerS’ publishing partner, to help you produce an outstanding manuscript, get published, and promote your work. Have your questions about journal publication answered by a host of experts. Lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
