Title: 'Publishing and reviewing in international journals'.
This session is suitable for researchers and PhD students and will guide authors through the process of writing and reviewing papers for international journals. To help authors succeed in publishing, the workshop will give guidelines for the nature of papers published and the content of each section, based on the presenters' great experience of writing, editing and refereeing papers.
By the end of the event, participants will have a clearer understanding of:
· the process of creating a paper,
· the nature and attractiveness of the title, contents of the Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion sections,
· the features looked for by editors,
· ways of presenting information to make a paper more citable, valuable and attractive,
· why papers may be rejected outright by international peer-reviewed journals,
· citation indices and impact factors,
· the means of choosing referees, the role and responsibility of referees, the way to referee a paper and the ways to help the editors,
· the role and responsibility of the editors,
· the process of publishing a paper from submission to appearing in print,
· how to referee papers and the process and the importance of refereeing.
