Publish Successfully - Some Important Aspects

The presentation will highlight some key issues to take care of when preparing journal papers. Advice will be provided on how to select the right journal for the paper, how to define the right paper type, and how to work out a research paper with emphasis on the key items that make it a research paper. In addition to these basic items, information will be provided on how to address reviewer comments, how to understand editorial decisions, and how to deal with conflicting information and problems. In overall, the information provided targets at increasing the chance for success when submitting journal papers. This presentation is based on own experience as an author, reviewer and handling and associate editor for several international journals.
