Finding the Best Journal for Your Article

In order to get published, you first have to find the best venue for your manuscript. In this workshop, we’ll explore different manuscript and venue types, standard methods for evaluating the quality and fit of journals, and how to avoid predatory journals or scams.

Lunch will not be provided as part of this workshop, but feel free to bring your own. 

*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students in engineering and the natural sciences.
