讲座主题： Publish in international journals
Research is defined as creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications. It is important that research is disseminated to the wider community through different medias, including publish in academic journals. It is highly competitive to write for academic journals, and even harder for international journals which can be less familiar to us.
There’s no simple formula for getting published - editors’ expectations can vary and reviewers’ opinions can be biased. But there are some principles and tips could help all academic writers regardless of their discipline. How to choose the right journal to submit? Is there a correct way to structure a paper? How should you respond to reviewers’ feedback? And should you always bother revising and resubmitting? This talk will try to share some tips on getting published in international journals.
