This Manchester University seminar will be presented by Clare Lehane, Executive Publisher, Energy & Planetary Science, and Michaela Kurschildgen, Customer Consultant, Elsevier, the world’s leading publisher of science, technology and health science journals. Aimed primarily at Medical and Life Sciences and EPS postgraduates it will explain the best way of structuring your paper when writing it, the most appropriate journal to send it to, and will really help 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.
After attending this workshop participants will have a clear idea of the steps needed to be taken before starting to write a paper. They will also be able to plan writing manuscripts using the logical step sequence not the sequence in which the paper will be read. Authors are also made aware of what aspects of their papers Editors 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. Sensitive areas such as publishing ethics, plagiarism, duplicate publishing etc are also clearly explained such that participants have a clear understanding of what is allowed, and what is not permitted.
