The Authors Ethics and IEEE Author Tools Workshop will take place on Tuesday, 9 October, 2018 from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. The first half of this workshop will provide a comprehensive review of author ethics and best practices that covers the proper preparation of a manuscript, application for funding and grants, avoiding bibliometric and citation manipulation, submission and the peer review process, and offers suggestions towards the best ethical practices to ensure successful publication. The second half of this workshop will be presentations about new and updated IEEE tools for authors. The first presentation will be from IEEE DataPort™, a new IEEE product and service in support of submitting data and code in an IEEE dedicated repository with support from the Signal Processing Society. IEEE DataPort™ will be complimentary for a limited time, after which a modest fee for maintenance and sustainability will be required. The next presentation will be from IEEE Author Center, which is launching its next phase of services. IEEE Author Center is now the premier tool that covers everything an author needs to navigate through the author journey from tools and templates, selecting a journal, choosing the correct copyright, posting pre- and post-publication, access to editorial and production tools, and finally, article dissemination in print and to IEEE Xplore®. Please join us for this informative workshop and we welcome interactive discussions during the Q&A.
Bill Colacchio, SPS Senior Manager, Publications & Education Strategy and Services, will moderate the event.
