Publishing papers in peer refereed
academic journals is an important job for all scholars. In many fields, high-ranking
journals have evolved and it is getting increasingly difficult to publish
papers in them. Many of these high-ranking
journals have a rejection rate of over 90%, and they only accept “perfect
papers” in both analysis and English.
In this workshop, we will
- share some recent
editorial policies and trends in Operations Research (OR) and Systems
Engineering (SE) related journals; and
- examine various
quick tips on English writing which will help enhance the chances of paper
While the focus of the workshop will
be on OR-SE journals, many points are generic and applicable to other fields. Thus,
this workshop should appeal to colleagues from all backgrounds and to those who would like
to learn more about the current practice of academic publishing and quality writing.
* This activity is jointly organised by the CoP on Using English for Academic Success and EDC. Registration priority will be given to academic faculty with teaching responsibilities.
