In this talk, the speaker will first discuss some general principles of mathematical and scientific research from a broad perspective: what kind of advantages/disadvantages and strengths/weaknesses that you or your publishing?
The speaker will then demonstrate the editorial process of scientific publishing from submission, refereeing to acceptance using real research journals as examples. From the demonstration of this editorial process, the author can understand better what the criteria, expectations and tools are in order to facilitate the acceptance of his/her papers by a research journal.
From there, the speaker will further address elements of good English technical writing so that the quality of English prose can be enhanced. Some common grammatical and syntactic errors by Chinese scholars will be illustrated. Ideas for improvements will also be suggested.
The speaker hopes that this presentation will be interactive with the audience's active participation, commenting and discussions. The final objective is that through such discussions, everyone (including the speaker himself) can write better papers in the future.
