How to Publish Your Research A Workshop for Early Career Researchers
Good research deserves to be published, to be widely read, and to be recognized by fellow researchers and the community. The current research (and funding) climate makes it necessary that you are successful in being published: “Publish or Perish”. This then raises the question, how can you achieve that goal? The aim of this workshop is to enable the early career researchers to impart the basic framework for the development of a good publication skill and technique.
