Want to publish? You are not alone….

April 22, 2015

There will be two author talks at the John Cotton Dana Library. The one on April 21, 2015 will focus on the sciences and health sciences. The one on April 27, 2015 will focus on the social sciences. Developed by Elsevier, these programs provide information and encouragement to early career researchers interested in publishing. The workshops will include a presentation by an Elsevier publisher and a discussion by journal editors from the Rutgers faculty – publisher and editor perspectives all in one program! In addition to information about the publishing process, both the publishers and the editors will offer invaluable tips on how to make the process flow more easily. Elsevier will provide booklets and other handouts for attendees. Light refreshments will be served.

These free programs are being sponsored by the Graduate School-Newark, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, John Cotton Dana Library, Rutgers Business School, School of Criminal Justice, School of Public Affairs and Administration, and Elsevier. They are open to Rutgers students, faculty, and staff. To register, please visit
