Scientific Publication: Thoughts on Reading, Writing, and Reviewing the Forensic Science Literature

This is a past event.

Friday, April 2, 2021 at 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Virtual Event

Science benefits from effective communication of ideas. Research results are shared with others through publications and presentations. Scientific publication involves efforts in reading, writing, and reviewing the literature. Editors of peer-reviewed journals rely on input from scientific colleagues to judge the merits of submitted manuscripts. Knowledgeable reviewers providing timely feedback are important for a successful peer-review process.

This presentation will share insights based on editorial experience with Forensic Science International: Genetics as well as extensive writing practice in preparing five textbooks and over 180 research articles and invited book chapters. Reviewing manuscripts is a chance to provide an important service and to influence the scientific community for good.
