Session Descriptions:

Scientific Literature, Tips on How to Publish…  The Role of IEEE (IEEE)

Are you interested in publishing but not sure where to begin? Are you looking for an IEEE Author Center that covers the process from conception to published paper? And do you want tips on how to prepare, write & submit a quality technical article? If so, this is the session for you.

The presentation will touch upon the entire writing process of an academic publication, and address the questions that arise in the mind of students who are new to the realm of publishing. The session is aimed at new authors who are working on research projects and seek recognition of their research through IEEE publications.

Speaker: Ruth Wolfish, IEEE Client Services Manager, IEEE

 

Options in Becoming a Peer Reviewer (SAGE Publishing)

This session provides a contrast in how peer reviewers are chosen for most academic journals as compared to other options such as how SAGE chooses peer reviewers for a resource like SAGE Business Cases. We will discuss how SAGE approaches the peer review process across our platforms, with particular emphasis on digital library products. In which ways can academics become involved in being peer reviewers? What do publishers mean by peer review? Double-blind peer review?
