How to Get Published in a Research Journal
December 16, 2013, Posted In: Postgraduate, professional development, writing , Venue: Room 6581-2 (E2I training room)
Mr. Chris Pringle, Executive Publisher at Elsevier – Geography and Transport, shared his perspective on navigating through academic publishing with engineering research postgraduate students at the end of the fall semester. He advised the students on a number of academic publishing issues that our students care about, such as constructing a strong manuscript, the criteria of choosing journals to publish in, and how to respond to reviewers’ comments.
Mr. Pringle also shared his opinions on the current academic publishing trend in an interview with E2I before his talk:
The transition from print to electronic journals has increased the readership from hundreds in the past to millions now.
The increase in the number and range of readers mean well communicated research could have significant contributions to the field.
