Journal articles should be published in order to make the greatest possible impact in the scientific field - not simply to increase the list of publications. In this workshop, Andrea Sanchini will discuss with participants on how to navigate the different steps of publishing and how to deal with the peer review process, increasing the chances of acceptance.


  • Introduction to publishing
  • Publishing for impact
  • How to select a target journal
  • H-index, impact factor and other journal and article metrics
  • The peer review system: submitting revising, and resubmitting
  • How to effectively communicate with editors and reviewers
  • Copyright and license
  • Ethical issues in publishing (e.g. predatory publishing, authorship disputes, plagiarism)
  • Publishing open access


Please note

During the workshop, participants can draft a cover letter for their next article. Therefore, before the workshop participants are asked to prepare the (preliminary) title of their next article.
