When is my manuscript ready for submission? How do I choose a journal that is most appropriate for my manuscript? What are my rights as an author? What is open access and why should I care? How is impact factor measured? Diana Schlamadinger, Journal Manager at AIP Publishing, aims to answer these questions as well as address some of the commonly held misconceptions about scientific publishing.


Prof. Justin Cooper-White, Editor-in-Chief of APL Bioengineering, will discuss the mission of the newest AIP Publishing journal, APL Bioengineering, emerging fields in bioengineering that will be captured by upcoming issues in the journal, and why you should submit.


A question and answer session will follow to answer any questions you may have about how to maximize your chances of getting your work published in APL Bioengineering and beyond.
