Beijing, China: As part of an extensive educational initiative for authors across China, Enago conducted a series of informative author workshops at the following four renowned universities: Peking University, Tsinghua University, Jilin University, and Renmin University of China. These workshop sessions were attended by over 800 researchers and faculty members from different research backgrounds.
The interactive workshops were specifically designed for Chinese researchers and delivered in the local language. The workshops focused on discussing the latest challenges and developments in academic publishing, helping authors gain valuable insights into the international publishing process, and understanding how rejection from international journals can be avoided. All four workshops were received very well and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
The workshop sessions were conducted by Dr. Mingfang Lu, General Manager, Enago, who obtained his PhD from Tsinghua University. A distinguished publishing expert, ex-Editor-in-Chief, and physicist, Dr. Mingfang Lu has a diverse academic profile and has driven several initiatives in the academic publishing industry in China. He has trained and mentored several early-career researchers and students for over 20 years.
Here are a few comments from the universities on Enago’s workshops:
Professor Xuzong Chen, Director of Institute of Quantum Electronics, Peking University (PKU) stated, “I think the workshop covered all aspects of the process of writing and publishing a research paper in English. The sessions were detailed and interesting; especially thanks to Dr. Mingfang Lu who has a strong research background and a long experience as Editor-in-Chief in a well-known international publishing company. The workshop was very useful in guiding graduate students and young researchers to write and publish their own research papers in the best way.”
Professor Qiang Zhang, Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University (THU) commented, “Writing and publishing English scientific papers is very important for sharing research results and gaining peer recognition. I think Enago’s workshop had covered all relevant aspects including publishing ethics, open access, etc. in detail which was especially helpful for graduate students.”
