Journal Publishing Workshop 2024

Journal Publishing Seminar:
Writing to be Published

live and in-person at icacc, EMA, and future meetings!
To be cited your work must be read. To be read it must be found and it must be compelling. To be found and compelling it must be written to be understood by people and search engines, and submitted to the appropriate journal. 

Writing well is key to getting your work published, discovered, read, and cited which are all critical to career advancement. An important function of the American Ceramic Society is helping you gain knowledge and experience to help you grow as a researcher.

Your writing journey begins well before putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboards.  Of utmost importance is understanding how your work fits the aims and scope of journals you are considering. Misalignment is the top reason for manuscript rejection.

Once you decide on your first-choice journal, your manuscript must be written to meet both universal and journal-specific expectations. Some of these include authoring titles, abstracts, introductions and conclusions to appeal to three groups: editors, the target audience, and indexing service bots.

Come join our journal editors to discuss success factors for getting your manuscripts published.
