The Nanoscience and Technology Division is hosting a special seminar featuring Dr. Jeremy Allen from the Royal Society of Chemistry. Dr. Allen will discuss his career in scientific publishing and offer advice on the publication process, from peer review to promoting your work. All postdocs and interested researchers are encouraged to attend.
Date: Tuesday, March 3rd
Location: Bldg 440, Room: A105/106
The Royal Society of Chemistry is one of the leading international chemical societies and it plays an important role within the community – helping to support those working in and studying the chemical sciences with a wide range of activities. During this presentation I will introduce the work that the Royal Society of Chemistry does, my role within the organization and the route I took from PhD student to being the Deputy Editor for Chemical Science. I will also highlight the role publisher’s play in the community and the benefits they can afford for supporting the dissemination of an author’s research output. Finally I will discuss the peer review and publication process, including how to choose a journal, getting your paper noticed and what to do after publication.
About the Speaker:
Jeremy Allen joined the Royal Society of Chemistry in July 2014 as a publishing editor, starting on the journals Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and Nanoscale. Before moving to his current role as the Deputy Editor for Chemical Science, he also worked as a publishing editor on the Royal Society of Chemistry’s analytical chemistry portfolio and as a deputy editor on ChemComm and Chemical Society Reviews. Prior to joining the organization, he completed a PhD at the University of Bath, UK and worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. His research focused on the use of computational chemistry for modelling reactions on surfaces and understanding the defect chemistry of oxide materials.
