What are the steps to becoming an author for NACE publications and NACE-published books and compilations? The answers can be found at a CORROSION 2019 “open house” session hosted by editors and managers from NACE International’s Publications Division.
The “How to Be an Author” session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 from 10:30 a.m. to noon local time. This session will be held in the Red Theater (Booth 1114) in the Exhibit Hall at the Nashville Music City Center.
Presented by NACE International Publications representatives Stephanie Chizik, Ben DuBose, Sammy Miles, and Jean Broge, the 90-minute session will provide insight into content needs, proposal writing, author guidelines, and submission processes. Among the NACE publications that will be discussed: CORROSION journal, a peer-review publication featuring technical articles from top researchers in the field of corrosion prevention and control; Materials Performance magazine, the world’s largest circulation periodical dedicated exclusively to corrosion; and CoatingsPro Magazine, which serves the high-performance industrial coatings industry with information on experiences encountered in the field.
The “How to Be an Author” session will offer information on preparing and submitting manuscripts and proposals for a corrosion control/coatings audience. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of NACE Publications personnel, as well as engage with individual staff members and technical editors as potential authors for NACE paper, book, and magazine articles.
More than 100 attendees packed the Protective Coatings Workshop area of CORROSION 2019's Exhibit Hall on Tuesday to learn tips on best practices as well as new techniques and technologies available to coatings contractors.
Back by popular demand is the Cathodic Protection Field,open during exhibit hours on the show floor beginning Monday evening at the Expo opening. Visitors will have the opportunity to conduct hands-on activities based on actual cathodic protection (CP) systems. They will learn from industry experts who will be available to answer questions and discuss CP situations you may have.
As NACE International wraps up its 74th annual conference, corrosion professionals from around the world continued the momentum started by the 11 founding members in 1943 when almost 6,000 attendees from nearly 70 countries worldwide came together at the Nashville Music City Center and other area venues for CORROSION 2019.
