Over 200 people attend ‘How to write a great research paper’ workshopPosted: 21 February, 2017
Over 200 people attended the 'How to write a great research paper and get it published in a top Journal' workshop organised by the DIT Digital Skills and Research Hub earlier this month.
The workshop was originally scheduled to take place in the DIT FOCAS Institute, but due to overwhelming demand was moved to a bigger location, DIT Gleeson Hall.
Dr Brian O'Neill, Director of Research, Enterprise and Innovation Services at DIT gave the opening introductions.
Deirdre Dunne, a veteran publisher working at Elsevier since 2002, gave great insights from the publisher perspective. Deirdre is currently the Senior Publisher for the Environmental Science and Health flagship journals including Science of the Total Environment and Environment International.
Professor Damià Barceló, Co-Editor in Chief of Science of the Total Environment at Elsevier, provided an overview of what an editor is looking for in a paper, the technical requirements and how to increase your chance of getting published. Damià is also Director and Research Professor at the Catalan Institute for Water Research and has a prolific academic publishing record.
Well done to all involved on a fantastic workshop!
