Getting Published in the CAS

Originally Presented at the 2006 CAS Annual Meeting

Perhaps you've been thinking about writing and getting published, but just didn't know where to start. A session was presented at the 2006 Annual Meeting to take the mystery out of the publications process. A panel comprised of published authors and editorial board members discussed the process of turning an idea into a published paper. The panelists explained the differences among the various CAS publication options and described the exciting changes that are underway. They also discussed the process of submitting a peer-reviewed paper and the associated editorial guidelines. Learn what the new Journal Editorial Board is looking for in a paper and get valuable tips for a successful submission.
