报告题目：Materials Science and Physics Journals Program at Wiley
报 告 人：Dr. PETER GREGORY，《Adv. Mater.》主编
Abstract: A highly competitive research environment with increasingly limited research funding has created a “Publish or Perish” attitude among scientists who are judged on the quantity rather than quality of their research articles. This presentation provides a brief overview of current trends and challenges in scientific publishing, some ethical considerations, how publishers and authors interact and influence each other, and how the publishing arena is being transformed. Tips will be presented on how to select an appropriate journal for your paper, what aspects of preparation and presentation to focus on from an editor’s and referee’s perspective, and hints for increasing the discoverability of your paper after publication. The importance of books publishing and the workflow involved in producing a scientific book will also be discussed.

报 告 人：Dr. JOSE OLIVEIRA， 《Small》主编
个人简介：José Oliveira studied chemistry at the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa). He obtained his PhD at the same university in 2000 in organic synthesis, working on reaction methodology and natural product synthesis. He worked for a year as a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Pharmacy at the Universiteit Antwerpen (Antwerp, Belgium) developing mass spectrometric techniques for analyzing trace organic contaminants in the atmosphere. He joined Wiley-VCH (Weinheim, Germany) in January 2001 and served as Senior Associate Editor of Angewandte Chemie. He helped launch Chemistry – An Asian Journal, for which he served as Deputy Editor. In 2008 he assumed his current role as Editor-in-Chief of the nano- and microtechnology journal Small. He was also founding Editor of the newly launched Advanced Healthcare Materials.
