Publishing in Engineering and Sciences: 
Authors, Readers and Editors Perspectives

A series of two seminars for PhD students and UofL/Speed faculty 

Part I: September 25, Friday
Part II: October 2, Friday

Room 100, JB Speed Auditorium
Refreshments at 3pm, lectures begin at 3:30pm


Abstract: Publication efforts cover four areas of scholarship: Discovery, Integration, Application, and Teaching. Various publications formats are discussed in this seminar. Since different formats are designed to reach various audiences, they often undergo different review procedures, and have widely different impact. Ultimately, however, publications are judged by their relevance and citations. Relevance measures as expressed by Impact Factor and other bibliometric indicators are reviewed and compared for major journals in different subject areas. Open Access publishing paradigm is also discussed.
