Publishing an article can be quite a challenge. Determining your audience,
choosing a journal and dealing with reviewers, editors and publishers are important
skills you need to acquire in your academic career.
The University Library is offering you some help on how to prepare yourself and
how to write a quality scientific manuscript by organizing a seminar on these topics.
During the seminar, a number of experienced scientists and a publisher will share
their insight and experience of the publishing process and respond to the questions
that you may encounter as a beginning author.
