Ethics for Authors: Things You Should Know Before Submitting Your Next Paper

This presentation and discussion will focus on what to do—and what not to do—for successfully publishing a technical paper (and avoiding common mistakes that can result in a quick rejection). Navigate the review process more smoothly with insider information about peer-review and by better understanding the ethics and etiquette standards that authors are expected to uphold and that reviewers and editors are looking for. Learn how to:

  • fairly report your results and those of others
  • appropriately reference and include your own previous work
  • appropriately describe and cite prior work

Attend this session and avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism and other inadvertent ethics/etiquette violations such as duplicate submissions, inappropriate replication, and bibliometric manipulation—all without undergoing personal traumatic experiences! This session will be of particular interest to those who are new to publishing with IEEE (but should also be useful for those who already have as well!). Lunch is provided for student attendees.

Time: Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 12:30 - 14:00
Location: Hotel Bonaventure Montréal, Fontaine D

To assure your spot and lunch, please register via the GlobalSIP 2017 Registration system. Lunch is provided for the first 50 student registrants.
