Gear Up Spring 2018

Gear Up logo

The Stanford community is invited to join us April 17 from 9:45 AM - 2:45 PM at the Hartley Conference Center in the Mitchell Earth Sciences building for a series of sessions on all things sci-tech publishing. The preliminary agenda is full of great topics: 

Graphics for Publications, Data Sharing for Publications, Writing Abstracts, Author Rights, Graphical Abstracts, and Preprint Services

We’ll also have a group of Stanford faculty who serve as journal editors joining us for a panel discussion to answer your questions about how to get published.

Get the full program at and RSVP to let us know you are coming (we’re buying lunch!).

New print books: March 11-17, 2018
