  • Workshop: From Lab to Article: Insider Tips for Successful Publication

Congrats on a successful research project. Now it’s time to let the world know about your successes in the lab. Publishing the results of one’s research is an integral part of the scientific process, yet scholarly journals are often seen as black boxes by younger researchers. How do I know the journal I submit to is the right one for my work? Is the cover letter important? What happens to a paper after it is submitted? Who is deciding on its fate? What is the role of the journal editor and the editorial office? How does the peer-review process work, and are its core principles still relevant in today’s changing publishing landscape? In this workshop, professional editors will discuss these and other aspects of scientific publishing. They will share their tips for bringing your research from the lab to a published article in Angewandte, Chemistry, Int. Journal of Quantum Chemistry, and many other renown journals of the chemistry portfolio.
