Scientific Publishing is a core element of scientific work. But before a thesis, a paper, or a scientific book is published there is the search for the most appropriate journal and publisher.

Dr. Eva E. Wille, Vice President, Executive Director of Wiley-VCH, Weinheim (www.wiley-vch.de) will give an overview on important scientific publishers in the fields of chemistry, materials science, physics, and life sciences. She will point out important steps that have to be undertaken to submit a paper successfully, i.e. getting in contact with editors, finding out about citation style, deadlines, and review procedures. The audience will learn what aspects and mistakes can cause problems in the submission process and in the worst case can lead to the rejection of scientific papers. She will also give some insight into the “rules” of communication between authors and publishers and discuss with the participants.

Target audience: foreign doctoral candidates of Mainz University
