  • Day 4 Graphene Week : Scientific contribution rewarded - more video interviews of presentations given

    Sandra Šopić, Johannes Jobst, André Dankert, and Zhenyuan Xia were the four individuals who produced the best posters, chosen from more than 400 posters presented over four afternoons during Graphene Week 2014. The winners were selected by the Conference Programme Committee and a number of independent referees for their scientific contribution and clarity of presentation. Each poster session winner received a prize of €300, sponsored by the science journals EPL and AIP. & Looking ahead to next year Graphene Week at Manchester in 2015 & Watch the video messages of presentations given
  • Day 3 Graphene Week: Tips on How to Get Published

    Add a video abstract to your academic article and on average it will attract three times the number of downloads. Do not use unnecessarily complicated language. Also, if you write about something that is disruptive and can attract a huge crowd, it is far more likely that the article will be published.
    These were just three of the tips and insights provided by editors from Physical Review Letters, 2D Materials and three different Nature journals during a Graphene Week fringe session on research publishing.
    First up on the third day of Graphene Week in Gothenburg was Tony Heinz from Columbia University in the USA. He gave a talk on terahertz spectroscopy of graphene and described the response of electrons in graphene to electromagnetic radiation over a wide spectrum range.
