Beyond Science Sessions

Beyond Science Sessions

The ESOC Conference Planning Group would like to introduce you a new session category which was added to the scientific programme this year – “Technology | Multi-Discipline | Beyond Science”.

See below to view the details. 

1 September 15:15-16:45
Hall A

Learning Objectives: This will be a highly practical session on publishing in stroke journals. The first two talks will cover guidance for the delegate on how to increase their chances of success by optimal preparation of a paper before submission, and to explain how the journal processes work and what can be done to increase the chance of acceptance. This will be followed by a session on how to review a paper, including opportunities available for reviewer training, such as the early career support provided by Stroke journal. It will finish with a talk on the many changes and challenges that are occurring in publishing, and a gaze into the future as to what the format of publishing will look like in 10 years time.
