Scientific Publishing Print E-mail

Participants will have the opportunity to find out more about scientific publishing. Each publication will have a display in the exhibition area and there will be various sessions offering careers advice in relation to publishing plus opportunities to meet the EMBO editorial teams.

The Peer Review Process - Saturday 10 September 14:30 to 17:30 Location: Yellow Level, Room OE E558

Part of the career day, EMBO Editors will discuss how the peer-review process works, and provide practical advice on how to review papers. Using, for example, Review Process Files, which are published alongside EMBO Journal manuscripts, the course will look at how the review process normally works, what makes a good report, and how editors deal with conflicting reports and other difficult situations. Material for the course will be made available prior to the start.

Meet the Editors Lunch - Sunday 11 September 12:30 to 13:30 Location: Yellow Level, Foyer E

The editorial teams of the four EMBO publications warmly invite you for informal discussions over lunch. We look forward to meeting you, hearing about your research, discussing your views on science & publishing and informing you about the scope & editorial procedures of our journals. Participants need not register for this event; please feel free to stop by and meet the editors.

Scientific Publishing session - Sunday 11 September 18:45 to 20:00 Location: Green Level, Room O1 NO
