Science Faculty workshop for early career researchers

A Science Faculty workshop for early career researchers on how to publish papers in high-impact journals, organised by Sophie Webber from the School of Geosciences and Cornelius Hempel from the School of Physics, led to a variety of insights and vigorous discussion on Tuesday, 1 August 2018. Tim Bedding (Prof of Physics), Katherine Belov (Professor of Comparative Genomics and PVC Global Engagement), Elaine Sadler (Prof of Astrophysics and Director of the Centre of Excellence “CAASTRO”), and Dietmar Müller (Prof of Geophysics) debated how to frame research for these journals, how to “grab the editor’s attention” and how to handle the common occurrence of rejection – advice on the internet ranges from: relax with your favourite tea or coffee, vent to your friends or family, exercise, get a hug or open a bottle of red wine.
