This seminar will provide an overview of the tasks involved in preparing a paper for publication.
Key topics include:
• Effective titles

Each participant should bring with her/him a copy of an article that reports on research in the participant’s field of interest and that has been published in a prestigious journal. We will use these papers as the basis of our analysis.
