Publishing masterclass

Author(s): Ilaria Meliconi

Year: 2015


This is a publishing masterclass covering five major aspects of the publishing process:

copyright (what it is and what it's for)

ethics (plagiarism, fabrication and falsification); retraction, expression of concern, correction (or erratum).

Open Access and CC licenses: what are the options

Impact Factor and other metrics: what they are, how they are calculated

how to be not just a reviewer but a great reviewer

The topics will of course be relevant for all disciplines and all academic journals, not just those published by a specific publisher. There will be time for questions and discussion, and the participants will choose which modules will be covered.
