Writing for Top Journals Workshop

Professor Athman Bouguettaya School of Computer Science, University of Sydney, Australia [email protected]


This workshop aims to train early career researchers and PhD students to write for top journals and convert conference papers into successful quality journal articles. Writing for journals requires skills that not only include sharpened research ability but also understanding the way journals work and operate. This workshop will go through the whole spectrum of manuscript preparation, journal selection, and submission, response to reviewers, decision aftermath, and ethical matters. This training will equip researchers with skills that would enable them to confidently submit and publish papers in top ranked journals. Conducting quality research is only the beginning of the process. Publishing in top journals is the ultimate aim. Several university world-ranking schemes use journal publications as a main criterion for ranking universities and academic departments. Therefore, it is imperative that researchers learn the right strategy that would maximize their chances of getting their paper accepted in top journals. Who should attend: PhD students and early career researchers in computer science and other related disciplines will find this workshop most useful. Researchers from other disciplines would also benefit.
