Abstract: Conducting a very high quality research may be the fundamental job for scientists but their survival in the long run depends on their ability to write good papers, articles, and reports and publish them in highly ranked journals. The writing process can be intimidating to many researchers even to experienced professionals. According to IEEE Member Matthias Reumann, a postdoctoral Fellow at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, “Writing requires discipline, organization, thoroughness, understanding of the background and consequences, and planning,” This seminar will present some ground rules on writing and publishing good scientific papers in high ranking transactions, journals and conferences. Personal experience with the association with IEEE over 30+ years as an associate editor (20+ years with IEEE Sensors Journal, 15+ years with IEEE TIM and 3 years with IEEE Mechatronics) and dealing over 3000 papers will be shared.
