Communicating the results of your research to the wider world is central to the conduct of scientific research and an essential part of your postgraduate studies. But how (and where) do you publish ?
Organising, compiling and writing a scientific publication is not a trivial exercise and communicating your results effectively to other researchers (and/or wider readership) is something of an art. In this workshop we will discuss: How to decide when your research is ready for publication; How to decide where to publish your research work; How to organise your publication; How to work with co-authors; What is the correct style for a scientific publication? How to submit a publication and what is the refereeing process; and How to respond to referees.
The session will have time for discussion and questions
