Publishing for beginners

Friday 26 July 09.30 - 11.30
Hall 9 (The ICC)

At the beginning of a career in physiology, scientific publishing can seem a mysterious enterprise. 

The goal of this session is to introduce postgraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career investigators to some of the unwritten “dos and don’ts” of publishing.  Armed with this information, you should be equipped to increase their chances of securing publication of your work in the journal of your choice while avoiding ethical minefields along the way.  The symposium will include editors from the Journal of Physiology and ample time will be set aside for an interactive panel with questions from the audience.

Organised by Kim E. Barrett, Professor of Medicine and Dean of Graduate Studies, University of California, San Diego, USA

  • Telling a compelling story David Paterson, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Physiology
  • Nuts and bolts of the review process – how to give the editors what they want Ian Forsythe, Senior Editor and Reviews Editor, Journal of Physiology
  • Avoiding common mistakes and ethical issues in your submission Kim Barrett, Deputy Editor-in-Chief for the Americas, Journal of Physiology

Panel discussion (30 minutes): Drs. Paterson, Forsythe, Barrett, Julian Paton (Deputy Editor-in-Chief for Europe, Journal of Physiology) and Yoshihiro Kubo (Deputy Editor-in-Chief for Asia, Journal of Physiology)
