The Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction (BSSC) is pleased to host Dr Bronwyn Wake, Chief Editor of Nature Climate Change, to give a talk at UCL on publishing in high impact journals.

Choosing the right journal to submit your work to can be difficult if you aren’t sure what criteria will be applied in assessing its suitability. Dr Bronwyn Wake will present on the Nature Portfolio journals – introducing the journals in the family and how they differ, as well as explaining their editorial processes and approach to peer review.

Following her talk, Dr Wake would be happy to engage with participants through one-on-one meetings. If you wish to discuss your research with her, please contact Dr Haoran Zhang via haoran.zhang@ucl.ac.uk, including a one-page A4 document introducing yourself and your research by Sunday 19 November 2023.

This event is part of the BSSC Research Training Course and is chaired by Prof. Zhifu Mi, BSSC's Director of Research.
