Welcome to Elsevier's Author Seminar "How to publish a world-class paper : from title to reference, from submission to revision".
May 24th, 13:00 to 15:30, at Kårhuset, John Ericssons väg 3, Lund, in the Main Lecture Hall "Kåraulan". No fee.
Elsevier offers this seminar, with the aim to present to interested (junior) scientists and PhD students, insights into how editors and reviewers look at manuscripts, which may help to get papers accepted for publication in leading international journals. The seminar will also include guidelines on how to publish "A world class paper".
Focus will be on the following topics: advice on writing and submitting an article to international journals, explaining the editorial process, the perspectives of the editor and publisher, how to find hot topics, how to find collaborators and reviewers, as well as the right journal to publish in. Furthermore, issues related to scientific ethics, i.e. what authors are allowed to do with their published manuscripts, etc will be discussed.
There will be ample time for questions during (and after) the seminar.
The seminar is hosted by Lund University Libraries in cooperation with Elsevier, one of the world´s largest publishers in science, technology and medicine.
The lecturers Irene Kanter-Schlifke, PhD, Publisher Pharmacology & Pharmaceutical Sciences and Floortje Flippo, Account Development Manager, both from Elsevier, will offer practical manuscript advice and present issues related to the publishing process and scientific publishers.
Most likely, an "Elsevier editor" from Lund University will also take part in the presentation.
Although this presentation is primarily aimed at young scientists, it will also be of interest to more experienced authors, as well as to others who wants to know more about the publishing process of today.
