Publishing Ethics and Integrity Workshop

Elsevier Publishing Campus Presents Publishing Ethics & Integrity

Sharing your research through publishing is essential to advancing your career. As an author you will have to make decisions about where, how and when to publish. Authors also have the responsibility to understand ethical boundaries and maintaining integrity in reporting your research findings.

This workshop will address several topics related to publishing ethics and integrity such as conflicts of interest, plagiarism, ownership of content, responding to and serving as peer reviewers and making decisions about where and when to publish your work.

Course Objectives: This course is a partnership with Elsevier Publishing Campus. Participants will gain an understanding of basic ethical standards and receive guidance on how to make sound decisions when faced with common challenges in sharing research findings.

Registration Information:

Date: November 28th
Time: 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Location: Building 446 Auditorium
Refreshments will be served.

Guest Speakers:

Dr. Harold H. Kung is Walter P. Murphy Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University.  He received his B.S. from the University of Wisconsin and Ph.D. from Northwestern University. His research interest focuses on heterogeneous catalysis, but includes energy materials, synthesis of nanostructured materials, global energy supply and consumption, and sustainability.  He is the author of “Transition Metal Oxides: Surface Chemistry and Catalysis,” (1989, Elsevier Science Publ.), co-inventor of 6 patents, an editor of 5 monographs, and has published over 270 journal articles in catalysis and energy storage.  A Fellow of AIChE and AAAS, his other recognition include the W.H. Wilhelm Award in Chemical Reaction Engineering (AIChE), Gabor A. Somorjai Award in Creative Research on Heterogeneous Catalysis (ACS), Ernest Thiele Award (AIChE Chicago section), Robert Burwell Lectureship and Paul H. Emmett Award of the North American Catalysis Society.  Presently, he is Editor-in-Chief of Applied Catalysis A: General.

Dr. Robert Weber is a Senior Scientist and the Sector Manager for Commercial Business in the Physical and Computational Science Directorate at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. His activities include research on heterogeneous catalysis for fuels and chemicals. Previously he was CTO of Sunrise Ridge Algae, a startup company that attempted to commercialize the production of fuel precursors from aquatic biomass. Before that, he was the director of the chemical engineering practice of TIAX, the successor to the technology and product development division of Arthur D. Little and a member of the chemical engineering faculties of the University of Delaware and of Yale University. At Yale he served for two years as an associate dean of the graduate school. Currently he serves as an associate editor of Energy & Fuels, as a member of the Advisory Committee of the Tianjin Engineering Center for Biomass Gas/Oil Technology and on the boards of directors of Conservation through Poverty Alleviation, International and Palo Verde Ridge Scholarship Fund. He holds a BA from Cornell University and a PhD from Stanford University, both in physical chemistry.

Target Audience: This course is intended for Postdoctoral Researchers, Students, Early Career Staff, Postdoc and Staff Mentors and Principal Investigators. Anyone interested in the publishing ethics and publishing with integrity is welcome to attend.
