Structuring your research paper



Structuring your research paper

Knowing the best way of structuring your paper when writing it, and the most appropriate journal to send it to, really helps in getting your paper accepted. Also, understanding how editors and publishers think and what they expect, and knowing how the peer review process works, is invaluable insight into the publishing process.
In this seminar, a publisher and an editor will share their experiences with you.

After attending the workshop, you will have a clear idea of the steps needed to be taken before starting to write a paper. Authors are also made aware of what aspects of their papers Editors, Reviewers, and Publishers look at critically, and to ensure that in taking care of these areas, their papers are much more likely to be accepted. Dealing with referees’ comments and the art of polite rebuttal are also described such that these can be used to improve the submitted paper suitably.

These insights into the publishing process will enable you to be more confident as an author in the world of science publishing, and so should help them get their papers published more easily.

The following speakers are scheduled to appear:
Anthony Newman (Senior Publisher, Life Sciences Department, Elsevier) and Alfred Stein (Portfolio holder Research FMT Faculty ITC and Editor-in-chief of the journal Spatial Statistics)
