Online - Keep Calm and Do Research: Publishing with IEEE


In this workshop, we will focus on publishing technical papers with IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). The presenter, Tiffany McKerahan, IEEE Manager, Author Engagement & Support, will provide guidance on everything from how the IEEE publishing process works to submitting a manuscript and time-saving techniques for authors.  Attendees will learn:

  • Strategies to select an appropriate IEEE periodical or conference
  • How successful IEEE authors structure quality work to improve their chances of being accepted
  • Insights into what editors look for in a submission and why editors and reviewers reject papers
  • Tools & resources to help authors through the publishing process including IEEE's Author Center, Publication  Recommender, Graphics Checker, and Reference Preparation Assistant

 * This is a free and open workshop, but pre-registration is required for Zoom access. We’ll send out a Zoom link in the morning of the meeting.
