Alumni Get-together & Expert Talk: Insights into Scientific Publishing


25 Apr 2024, 18:00 – 25 Apr 2024, 20:00



Winter School & Career Center Alumni Networking

We want to celebrate our Winter School and invite all alumni (of the Winter School & other Career Center programs) to a Publishing Expert Talk & Get-together on April 25 from 6 PM.

Publishing your work in scientific journals is one of the central pillars in academia. As the main form of communicating your results to the scientific community, publishing endows both meaning to your work while also serving as a token of recognition, important to further your career.

In this expert talk, Patrick Zobel will give you a look behind the scenes of the publishing process by sharing his view as an editor at a scientific journal. In doing so, he will illustrate the stages your manuscript passes from initial submission to peer review and final publication, give you guidance on how to navigate them successfully, and talk about the work and prospects of an editor in the publishing industry.
