Workshop

“How to Publish in Top Journals”
Sun - 10 Dec | 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Georgia Institute of Technology

Workshop Fees: USD15 / SGD20 per person

Abstract
This workshop will discuss how to identify promising research topics, and how to publish papers in top Journals. Publishing in top international journals is important to many researchers in educational and research institutions. This presentation will discuss various topics important for research and paper writing, including
- How to judge if a journal is among the top ranking?
- How to select and define a research topic?
- How to organize and write a paper?
- What is the reviewing and publishing process for a paper?

The presentation will highlight the “dos and don’ts”. In addition, a “methodology tree” strategy will be introduced based on my experience of research and supervision of Ph.D. students. The “methodology tree” is a systematic strategy that can be used to organize the literature reviews, evaluate contributions of a research topic, facilitate communications among researchers, and provide a big picture of research problems involved.

The workshop should help scholars to reflect on their own experiences as researchers, authors, and reviewers. It will be interactive and tailored to the interests of those attending. Do bring along your questions and comments.

About the Speaker
Dr. Jianjun Shi is the Carolyn J. Stewart Chair and Professor in H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, with joint appointment in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Georgia Tech in 2008, he was the G. Lawton and Louise G. Johnson Professor of Engineering at the University of Michigan. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Beijing Institute of Technology in 1984 and 1987, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1992.

Dr. Shi is an early pioneer in the development and application of data enabled manufacturing. His methodologies integrate system informatics, advanced statistics, and control theory for the design and operational improvements of manufacturing and service systems.

Dr. Shi is the founding chairperson of the Quality, Statistics and Reliability (QSR) Subdivision at the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS). He is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the IISE Transactions, the flagship journal of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers. He also serves as Focus Issue Editor of IISE Transactions on Quality and Reliability Engineering, Editor of Journal of Systems Science and Complexity, Advisory Editor of International Journal of Quality Technology and Quantitative Management; and Senior Editor of Chinese Journal of Institute of Industrial Engineering. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIE), a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), a Fellow of Institute of Operations Research and the Management Science (INFORMS), and an Academician of the International Academy for Quality.

Dr. Shi received various awards for his research and education, including the IISE David F. Baker Distinguished Research Award (2016), the IIE Albert G. Holzman Distinguished Educator Award (2011), Forging Achievement Award (2007), Monroe-Brown Foundation Research Excellence Award (2007) and the 1938E Award (1998) at The University of Michigan (2007).
