Workshop tomorrow: Publishing demystified

Dear all,

The biology grads have put together the following event, and would like to encourage all to come.   Grads, we know your supervisors would like to see you go to this!

Publishing Demystified workshop & social 
Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 16th 
3:30pm in SSB 8114 <- this is on the same floor as the bio office, but over in SSB.  It's a great lil' room!
hosted by the Biology Grad Caucus

Come hear 5 young academics (former SFU grads) share their experiences and tips for successfully writing and publishing academic papers!  This is an informal setting, catered with drinks by the caucus.  Think 'fire-side-chat'.  Bring questions and share your own experiences.

Topics:
1. The anatomy of the modern published paper
2. Authorship guidelines and tips for dealing with coauthors
3. Perspectives on where to start writing and editing strategies
4. Software options and tips for citation, graphics and statistics
5. Literature searches, citation and plagiarism
6. Submitting your paper and writing great cover letters

Panel Q & A 
Beverages
Dinner

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Jenn, Steph, Anna, Alex, and the Biology Grad Caucus
