题  目:PUBLISHING IN Q1 JOURNALS

报告人:Prof. Scott W. Sloan, AO, FRS, FAA, FTSE, FIEAust, CPEng

时  间:94日下午15:30

地  点:河海大学力学与材料学院乐学楼313

内容提要:

        This seminar will focus on some of the key issues associated with publishing papers in top quartile journals. The speaker has been an Editor of Computers and Geotechnics for 16 years, and it is now the leading journal in computational geotechnics. The seminar will discuss common mistakes that are made by authors, and what the best strategies are for getting papers accepted. The metrics that are commonly used to assess the impact of journals will also be covered, pointing out their strengths and shortcomings. Finally, some background statistics on various geotechnical journals, including Computers and Geotechnics, will also be covered.
