Helping Researchers Publish in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Wed 8 Feb 2017


Join us for the second in our series exploring resources to help with the process of publishing your research in STEM disciplines - from recording observations to editing to peer review.

This session offers the chance to learn about available tools and options in publishing and reviewing, and ask questions of the experts.

We will explore:

  • returning scientific publishing to the scientists: innovative approaches to publishing and peer-reviewing single observations (Laurence Rajendran, ScienceMatters)
  • post publication peer review, open peer review and preprints (Nikolaus Kriegeskorte)
  • using collaborative writing tools for your papers (Overleaf)
  • peer review FAQs (Jennifer Wright, CUP)
  • connecting active research management and research publishing (Nigel Goddard, Research Space)
  • peer review and the benefits of openness (Tom Culley, Publons)

Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided, during which time you can speak to providers for information and user support.

Thanks to Overleaf, Publons and Research Space for their sponsorship of this event.
