How to publish your science: An editor’s guide on how to write an abstract and navigate peer review
|Starts:||13:00 9 Jun 2021|
|Ends:||14:00 9 Jun 2021|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Photon Science Institute|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Dr. Zach Ridgway|
Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr. Zach Ridgway. Scientific papers may have a rigidly defined structure and can be largely considered “artless prose,” but there’s still room to tell a compelling story that clearly communicates the science. The abstract presents a unique opportunity to engage readers and generate interest in your work. This presentation will cover ideas and examples of how to compose an abstract that communicates effectively and helps your work get discovered by researchers. The process of peer review will also be discussed, from the perspective of the editor, author, and reviewer. The presentation will offer ideas about how to navigate reviewer responses and improve your own skills as a reviewer.
This event will be taking place online and furthers details about the event and how to join will be made available shortly.
