    Early Career Reasercher Workshop


    Did you ever wonder what happens after you submit a manuscript or how best to deal with review comments? Are you aware how open access and transparent peer-review works? Or do you have any other questions about scientific writing or how to prepare a manuscript? Come and meet Prof. Tom Coulthard Editor in Chief of Earth Surface Dynamics.

    He will be visiting Salzburg and is available for a workshop on scientific publishing and the transition fro pay-wall publishing to open access. A great opportunity to find out how to get your research published!


    Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided!
