Talk @CityU Library – Elsevier Talk on Publishing in the XXI Century

The Library is pleased to announce the upcoming talk given by Elsevier – Publishing in the XXI Century: Publishing & Sharing your Research, Peer Review Innovations & Publishing Ethics

Researchers advance science by doing experiments, performing measurements and calculations, and interpreting the results. The next essential step is to write down the results and conclusions in a scientific paper and to get published in an academic journal, which however, requires a different set of skills.

Elsevier is an academic publisher that annually publishes 430,000 articles in 2,500 journals. Ms. Marlene Silva, Associate Publisher & Ms. Marina Soares E Silva, Publisher from Elsevier will give an interactive session to CityU staff and students on Academic Publishing. The talk will cover:

  • Tips on how to choose the best journal for you.
  • What are the editors looking for in an article and which tools can be used to promote your research?
  • What are the latest trends in Peer Review and Publishing Ethics?
  • What is Open Access publishing?
Speakers: Ms. Marlene Silva - Associate Publisher (Physical Sciences)
Ms. Marina Soares E Silva - Publisher (Physical Sciences)
Date and Time: 28 June 2018 (Thursday), 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Venue: User Education Room, Library
Medium of Instruction: English

This talk is aimed at new authors, but also at more experienced authors who want to keep up with current publishing trends. To reserve a seat, please register online.

For enquiries, please call 3442-8395, email lbinf@cityu.edu.hk or visit our Law & Reference Help Desk. Come and share your thoughts and questions!

Author Identity Management Workshops for Research Students

Banner

Don't you know that because of author name ambiguity (e.g. similar names, change of affiliations, etc.), your papers can be misattributed to somebody else by databases without you knowing it? You will lose credits for your publications. To avoid this, it is important that young scholars learn how to manage your author identity right at the start of your research career. How should you go about it?

The "Author Identity Management Workshops for Research Students" organized by the Library will help.

In the Workshop, you will learn what ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is as a unique author identifier and how to create or report it to fulfill the University requirement. We will also show you how to manage your Scopus Author ID (if any) and integrate it with your ORCID. By making your ORCID publication list public, you will enable Web of Science to add your ORCID information in its database. You will also learn how to update your researcher profile overview page in CityU Scholars.

To reserve a seat, please register online. There are three identical workshops with 30 quota each as follows. While research students will be given priority, the other users are also welcome to join. (The Library reserves the right to cancel any session with less than 5 registrants).

Date and Time: 26 June 2018 (Tuesday)
28 June 2018 (Thursday)
16 August 2018 (Thursday)
14:30 - 15:30
19:00 - 20:00
