About This Event:

Join us for the first event hosted by the official SF Bay Area IEEE-GRSS Chapter!

Understanding the inner workings of high-profile scientific journals can often be mysterious ventures. As such many questions around the publication process and decision making policy may appear confusing at times; Questions like how do they decide what to publish, or even to send out to review? How is the process managed? What are the odds of getting published? Do they publish papers only in the interests of being controversial and getting press coverage? And who makes the decisions?

In this first in a series of recurring webinars hosted by the newly established SF Bay Area Joint IEEE-GRSS Chapter, Dr. Michael White, Senior Editor of Physical Sciences in Nature will discuss the overall journal processes and common themes behind the remote sensing and climate science research published in Nature over the past decade.

A zoom link for the event will be provided in a follow-up email from eventbrite once you’ve confirmed your registration. You must register for the zoom meeting IN ADDITION TO this registration! Please do not distribute the zoom link publicly – only registered attendees should have access.
