Scientific Publishing Workshop: Excelling as an Author, Reviewer, or Editor

Date: Wednesday, March 14
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sponsorship: Content Development and Dissemination Committee; Professional Development Committee; Young Professionals Committee.

Many scientists and engineers are expected to publish papers and contribute to the literature of their field as part of their careers. This session will begin by providing tips for developing and submitting publishable content to technical journals. For those who wish to dive a little deeper into the publishing process, this session will also look at the activities of serving as a reviewer and editor for technical journals. The session will conclude with a panel discussion that offers participants the opportunity to ask questions of a broad range of professionals active in scientific publishing. This comprehensive overview of the publishing process will benefit anyone who aspires to write for, review for, or edit a technical journal, as well as anyone already active in these roles.

This workshop is open to all TMS2018 attendees. There is no charge to attend.
