The Springer Author Workshop on Scientific Writing for Journals is a pre-conference workshop supported by Springer Nature publishing group.
The face of scientific publishing is changing at a very fast pace. Transitions from print to electronic, the onset of open access publishing and the change in research demographics by geography, are a few of the issues being talked about in the publishing world today. How do these changes affect researchers? How can young researchers leverage these transitions to make their work visible? What is Open Access Publishing? What are citations and how are they calculated?
In this particular author workshop lecture, Ms. Swati Meherishi, Executive Editor - Applied Science and Engineering at Springer Nature, will speak briefly about the transitions in and the needs of the publishing world, and how young researchers need to prepare for it. This author workshop has been devised specifically as a resource for teaching non-native English-speaking researchers, particularly young scientists. Some of the key topics covered during this lecture are:
1. Writing for international journals: Structure, style, accuracy
2. Selecting a journal for your manuscript
3. Peer review and you
4. Publication ethics
5. Plagiarism, Citations, Open Access: The buzzwords of publishing
6. Avoiding pitfalls
The workshop lecture will take place on 09 December 2019 between 4 pm and 6 pm at VMCC, IIT Bombay and is free and open for everyone.
The conference will take place in the Victor Menezes Convention Center (VMCC) at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. VMCC hosts a well-equipped auditorium, seminar rooms, lounges, etc. that can hold several parallel oral and poster sessions.
Established in 1958, the second of its kind, IIT Bombay was the first to be set up with foreign assistance. The funds from UNESCO came as Roubles from the then Soviet Union. In 1961, the parliament decreed the IITs as ‘Institutes of National Importance'. Since then, IIT Bombay has grown from strength to strength to emerge as one of the top technical universities in the world and has recently been declared as one of the six ‘Institutes of Eminence’ in India.
