How to publish – dos and don'ts when writing a research article
A quick guide on what to be aware of when writing your research article – understanding what editors and reviewers are looking for when reading and evaluating your manuscript.

Digital Tools & how to promote your research
Publishing in the 21st century. What digital tools are out there? We will have peek at which ones to use for what effect. How to compare your scientific output with another university? How to evaluate your main competitors? Once your work has been published, how do you make sure it gets the right promotion and that it reaches maximum visibility? Who to share your published work with? How to make it available for readers? How to use Social Media to make your publication stand out? Join us for an interactive discussion!

12:00 'How Nature Indexing Helps You Find Nanotechnology Literature and Data Efficiently' – Dr. Prathik Roy (SpringerNature)

The exponential growth in nanotechnology has led to vast amount of information and data being dispersed throughout various journals and patents making the acquisition of this information difficult. The lack of standardized nomenclature for nanomaterials also poses a challenge which makes seeking and transfer of scientific results a difficult task for researchers. There exists, however, a great demand for quick and curated information on nanomaterials, properties and applications. Nano.nature.com known as Nano was launched in 2016 as a non-journal type product under the Nature Research portfolio. It gathers and indexes nanotechnology data from multiple publishers including AAAS, ACS, Elsevier, RSC, Springer Nature, Wiley and more. With Nano, one may access to our machine-learned index of nanotechnology articles and retrieve detailed information from the leading titles on properties, applications, toxicity and preparation methods of thousands of nanomaterials and devices.
