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? 


So You Want to Get Published: A workshop for graduate students and young professionals, sponsored by Saint-Gobain, explores opportunities for and the process of getting published.


Speaker and panelist Bill Farenholtz, editor-in-chief, Journal of the American Ceramic Society, along with panelists Hua-Tay Lin, editor, International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology, and Mario Affatigato, editor-in-chief, International Journal of Applied Glass Science, cover advice for students and young professionals and discuss the benefits and challenges of submitting research papers in the appropriate journal with appropriate formatting.


This informative publishing workshop takes place Monday, May 22, 2017, from noon to 1:15 p.m., in conjunction with the 12th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PACRIM 12) including Glass & Optical Materials Division Meeting (GOMD 2017), in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA.   


Key topics include

  • Demonstrating original, high-impact work
  • Writing for the audience (e.g., English language editing)
  • The ethical problem of plagiarism
