Annotation

The Karger Workshop is a session designed for both students just starting their professional careers and writing their first scientific papers, as well as scientists looking for a quick refresher how to publish a research paper. The first part of the session focuses on the publishing process: shining a light onto the mechanisms of research publishing and giving an insight into the process of selecting the right journal for one’s article and providing detailed information on the review process. The second part offers a variety of tips and tricks concerning the manuscript itself: from basic structure to detailed information including a variety of useful examples and advice on how to be effective in writing a research article.

After the Karger session, the participants will be acquainted with so-called predatory journals and their recognition.
