Workshop about Publishing

Opening the Editor's Black Box: Insider Tips for Successful Submissions

This workshop with Editors of Angewandte Chemie, the flagship journal of the GDCh published by Wiley-VCH, and ChemPhysChem is specifically tailored to the needs of master and PhD students and postdocs. Participants will receive a certificate so please register for the GDCh Campus Event and the workshop.

Publishing papers in reputed journals is an integral part of the research cycle. In this workshop, we will open the Editor's black box by explaining how manuscripts are processed from submission to publication. In addition, we will discuss ethical aspects of publishing and give tips on how to prepare your manuscript for submission and improve your chances for successful publication. Topics to be covered include:


  • How do I simplify my writing and improve the presentation of my results?
  • How do I choose the right journal for submission?
  • What do Editors and referees look for?
  • How do I improve the visibility of my research?
