What does it take to be published in the top-ranked scientific journals?
The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) invites you to a one-day intensive workshop that provides an insider’s perspective on the editorial processes at top-ranked journals such as Nature, and the strategies to maximize the chances of being published there.
Writing and publishing of research articles is a necessary, but not sufficient requirement to make an impact with your research. To successfully reach and influence your target audiences requires careful planning of both the writing and publication processes so that your papers are not only read, but understood, and found meaningful and influential by the readers. These considerations are particularly important if you wish to be published in the world’s top journals.
This workshop is interactive, with discussions and exercises used throughout to help you learn through practice. To give you the opportunity to reflect on your own body of work, we ask you to bring along two copies of an abstract you have written.
The workshop is led by Dr Dan Csontos. He is a science writer, editor and publishing consultant at Elevate Scientific, based in Lund, Sweden. Before founding Elevate he was a science editor with the international journals Nature, Nature Physics and Nature Communications, and a science editor and project manager with Macmillan Science Communications in London.
NOTE: Attendance at the workshop is free of charge, with lunch included, but attendees are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements. The number of participants is limited to 35. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
