Publishing Demystified Workshop Part II -- May 4th

Dear grads,

The Biology Grad Caucus is hosting its second "Publishing Demystified"workshop on Wednesday, May 4th,  3:30-5 pm in the IRMACS theatre. We had great turn out for the first of this series in November. This time, six faculty members have agreed will share their advice and insights on how to successfully publish peer-reviewed papers with us.

We've selected three topics, with two faculty speaking on each:

1. Why publish and how to choose where to publish (Michael Silverman & Jon Moore)
2.  Framing your paper: titles, abstracts and cover letters (Margo Moore & Bernie Roitberg)
3. Responding to reviews (Isabelle Côté & Ron Ydenberg)

We'll have ~20mins for each topic, followed by a brief question and answer period. The Caucus is hosting a reception (i.e. free food & drink) after the workshop at Club Ilia  for the participants and speakers, where there will be additional time to pick our speakers' brains.

Event details and schedule:

Event: Publishing Demystified Workshop 2
Date:  Weds, May 4th
Time: 3:30-5pm, social to follow at Club Ilia
Location: IRMACS theatre

We look forward to seeing you all there!
