报告题目： Publishing in Wiley Materials Science Journals
A highly competitive research environment with increasingly limited research funding has created a “Publish or Perish” attitude among scientists who are judged on the quantity rather than quality of their research articles. This presentation provides a brief overview of current trends and challenges in scientific publishing, some ethical considerations, how publishers and authors interact and influence each other, and how the publishing arena is being transformed. Tips will be presented on how to select an appropriate journal for your paper, what aspects of preparation and presentation to focus on from an editor’s and referee’s perspective, and hints for increasing the discoverability of your paper after publication.
Dr. José Oliveira studied chemistry at the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa). He obtained his PhD at the same university in 2000 in organic synthesis, working on reaction methodology and natural product synthesis. He worked for a year as a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Pharmacy at the Universiteit Antwerpen (Antwerp, Belgium). He joined Wiley-VCH (Weinheim, Germany) in January 2001 and served as Senior Associate Editor of Angewandte Chemie. He helped launch Chemistry – An Asian Journal, for which he served as Deputy Editor. In 2008 he assumed his current role as Editor-in-Chief of the nano- and microtechnology journal Small. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of the newly launched Advanced Healthcare Materials.
