Publication Etiquette and Ethics: Things You Should Know Before Submitting Your Next Paper

This presentation and discussion will focus on the dos and don’ts for successfully publishing a technical paper (and avoiding common mistakes that can result in a quick rejection). Navigate the review process more smoothly with insider information about peer-review and by better understanding the ethics and etiquette standards that authors are expected to uphold and that reviewers and editors are looking for. Learn how to:

  • fairly report your results and those of others
  • appropriately reference and include your own previous work
  • appropriately describe and cite prior work

Attend this session and avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism and other inadvertent ethics/etiquette violations such as duplicate submissions, inappropriate replication, and bibliometric manipulation - all without undergoing personal traumatic experiences! Lunch is provided for student attendees.
