How to publish your research: Video of Professor Chin-Teng Lin

Professor Chin-Teng Lin, who is the editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, speaks about publishing in that journal. This talk was part of a panel discussion at the CEC 2013 conference. Some of the points he makes in this talk are applicable to publishing in most journals:
  • Read existing papers, know the field
  • Present an issue of significance
  • Choose a journal that fits well with your research
  • Use the correct format for that journal
  • Have focus & vision, don't be too ambitious with your paper
  • Write clearly
  • Get pre-review, ask  your colleagues to check your paper before submission
  • Proofread!
  • Be patient, reviews take time
