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.
CORROSION 2019 offers an industry job fair that attracts hundreds of experienced professionals, up-and-coming talents, and graduate or post-doc candidates hitting the job market for the first time.
NACE Foundation will host the annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony and the GenNEXT Bash tonight. The awards ceremony, which will recognize the outstanding students and scholarship recipients for 2019, will take place tonight from 7 to 8 p.m. Then, at 8 p.m., the celebration starts!
