Success in Scientific Publishing and Outreach

Press conference

Publishing research is essential to building a scientific career—what strategies best support your scientific productivity and career success? This panel will provide an overview of journal publication strategies, the role of non-traditional outreach platforms, and Q&A time with attendees. With a panel of experts, we will discuss solutions to conundrums facing scientists in the publishing process, with a focus on early-career scientists. How do you decide what journal to submit to? What are the best strategies for responding to reviewer comments—especially if you disagree? Does the choice of journal affect the design of a study? How do blogs, Twitter, and videos change the nature of scientific publishing? Co-sponsored by the Earth Science Women’s Network, AGU Publications, and AGU.
