Pre conference workshop on
“Publishing Your Work in Impact Journal”
February 17, 2012; 10:00 am - 02:00 pm
Publishing science is as important to the scientific process as designing, conducting, and analyzing the experiment itself. Becoming an experienced researcher and writer in any field or discipline takes a great deal of practice. In fact, the process of writing a research paper can be one of the more rewarding experiences one may encounter in academics. What is more, many researchers will continue to do research throughout their careers, but without publishing their scientific works, they will not get actual value of the hard work and effort behind the research, which is one of the reasons this topic is so important. Publishing the article requires good writing skills along with that focus and proper knowledge about the journals guidelines and their scope.
The workshop focuses on essential techniques for effective writing and presentation of scientific information in impact journals. The workshop is in the format of active learning via direct discussions with eminent editors of different peer reviewed International and national journals. The workshop will highlight on some of the important issues related to publishing research works in journals with impact factor.
Major highlights of the workshop:
• Listen to the eminent editors of Impact journals.
• Improve your writing skills.
• Ask the editors directly about their views.
• Why your paper is rejected?
• How you can improve your research articles.
• Publication ethics and plagiarism.
• Identify the technical problems on writing an article.
• Structure of a research paper: IMRaD style.
• Writing different components of a paper: guidelines of journals.
