Writing Archival Papers
Alonzo G. Decker, Jr. Professor of Science and Engineering
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Johns Hopkins University
October 12, 2021
3-5 PM ET
This workshop focuses on the processes associated with the publication of archival journal papers within the scientific literature. We will discuss journals, editorial boards, reviewers; submission guidelines; how submitted papers are reviewed; and what reviewers and editors look for in papers.We will then discuss the mechanics of writing a paper (assuming the research has already been done). This includes the identification of the story that you want to tell, the typical structure of the journal paper, and the questions of authorship and plagiarism.
K.T. Ramesh, the Alonzo G. Decker, Jr. Professor of Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins, is a leading authority in the areas of impact physics and the failure of materials under extreme conditions. Ramesh is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and also holds joint appointments in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He is the founding director of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI), which develops science and technology to protect people, structures and the planet. HEMI brings together experts from Johns Hopkins’ Whiting School of Engineering, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and Applied Physics Laboratory, as well as scientists and engineers from the federal government, U.S. national laboratories, industry, and research institutions across the world.
