Attending this workshop will help you with:

  • Understanding scholarly publishing
  • Preparing articles and the review process

The workshop is facilitated by Joe d’Angelo,  the Publisher for the Civil Engineering journals at Elsevier.  He works on structural engineering, building physics, construction materials and fire engineering titles at Elsevier. He’s recently been focusing on a number of newly launched Open Access case study publications aimed at publishing the work of applied researchers and practitioners in civil engineering. Joe has over six years of STM publishing experience and previously held positions at Nature Publishing Group and Earthscan. His areas of interest include knowledge sharing between research and industry and the impact of research outside of academia.

In October, 2013, Joe published a new Open Access journal “Case Studies in Fire Safety.”
Case Studies in Fire Safety is part of a series of “Case Studies in…” open access journals published by Elsevier within the field of engineering. Journals in the series follow the article based publishing model, allowing for immediate publication of final version of a paper without waiting for other articles to be ready to compile a full issue.
