WORKSHOP BRIEF

Topic 1: Academic Publishing—Writing, Submission, and Successful Publication

This presentation is primarily targeted toward researchers who wish to submit their papers to top-notch international journals but face difficulty with the correct usage of language and grammar. In a system where experts from respective fields need to assess the validity, significance, and originality of the described work, it is imperative that the language quality of the articles submitted to such journals is good to avoid rejection at the peer review stage. Unfortunately, many papers that do not satisfy internationally accepted language requirements are rejected by the journal editors themselves and do not even reach the stage of peer review.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

  • Awareness of publishing papers in English and structuring of academic papers
  • Importance of literature review and structuring of reference lists
  • Importance of providing pointers while writing content and effectively using academic English in your papers
  • Preparing your paper for publication and journal selection
  • Discussion about the manuscript submission process

Topic 2: Research and Publication Ethics

This presentation will help researchers increase their awareness of the ethical issues related to research and publication, which can affect the publication of research as well as significant discredit among the academic community. In a system where experts from multiple fields are involved in various research collaborations, it is imperative that researchers ensure that each contributor is acknowledged to avoid any subsequent conflict of interest. This presentation will help researchers increase their awareness of the ethical issues related to research and publication, which can affect the publication of research as well as attract significant discredit from the academic community.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

WORKSHOP BRIEF

Topic 1: Identifying the Target Journal for Publication

In today’s scientific landscape when researchers have to publish their research in order to sustain their academic careers, the process of selecting a good journal is a crucial step towards showcasing their research to the right target audience. Owing to an exponential increase in the number of journals over the last decade, selecting an appropriate journal has become increasingly difficult. This presentation is primarily targeted towards early-stage researchers who wish to publish their research, but find it difficult to select an appropriate journal for their manuscript.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

  • Understanding the scope, visibility and discoverability of a journal
  • Assessing the quality of a journal and a basic understanding of some key journal metrics
  • Introduction to important concepts such as copyrights, open access and peer review
  • Expert tips and a list of tools for selecting an appropriate target journal
  • Discussion about the manuscript submission process

Topic 2: Dealing with Journal Rejection

This presentation is primarily targeted toward helping researchers in handing rejections from journals, and will also help early-stage researchers improve first-time acceptance of their manuscripts. The advancement of research hinges on the dissemination of new discoveries by their publication in peer-reviewed international journals. At the heart of academic publishing, peer review leads to over 1.5 million published scholarly manuscripts every year. Although the number of published papers is increasing year-on-year, this iterative selection process also results in approximately 60% rejection rate, including 21% rejection after preliminary editorial screening.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

  • Awareness of the rejection process and why papers of ESL authors are rejected by journals (regardless of the impact factor)
  • Understanding the peer review process and causes of rejection
  • Comprehending rejection letters and what reviewers mean
  • Importance of correctly responding to reviewer comments and revising their papers to make them publication ready
  • Overcoming journal rejection and providing a positive outlook to deal with journal rejection

The workshops will provide useful tips to authors on how they can directly address their target audience, successfully communicate the impact of their research and facilitate effective scientific communication.

These workshops will help the audience increase their awareness of the following:

  • Understanding the differences between traditional and open access journals
  • Improving accessibility and discoverability of research
  • Awareness of different publication models and predatory publishing
  • Preparing and giving poster presentations at international conferences
  • Planning for presentations at international conferences
