Join us for this panel of engineering faculty members with experience as journal editors for a basic overview of the publishing process, insights into how it works, tips for submitting papers/revisions, and perspectives from different fields/areas/journals.
You can submit questions & areas of interest ahead of time via the registration form as well as live during the panel.
This is a GWL workshop for engineering grad students & postdocs, but engineering faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
