Put Down the Pipette and Pick Up the Pen: Getting Your Work Published 

Convenor:  Glenn Rall, Fox Chase Cancer Center

The Education and Career Development Committee of the American Society for Virology presented a workshop focused on the process of publishing your work.  A panel of experts offered insights on how to know when it is time to put your data together, how to communicate your work clearly and enthusiastically, and into the publication process itself, once the manuscript has been submitted.  This special session was principally aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, although anyone registered for the meeting was welcome to attend.  The speakers have made their presentations from this workshop available here on our website.
