She will present the scientific vision of the journal, introduce you to its main objectives and article types. APL Energy will feature research related to energy and the integration of different energy technologies. It covers different areas of energy research and applications, from materials for energy and energy sources, applications of energy generation, storage and harvesting, including renewable energy and sustainability. She will also introduce a new article type, the “Proof of Concepts and Prototypes”, a brief description of an already demonstrated or intellectual property (IP) protected idea and its pathway to commercial viability. They welcome your submissions to the journal!
How to start writing your paper
Well-organized and clearly written papers are key to communication of scientific ideas. Readers should be excited by the title and abstract, drawn into the topic by the introduction, and appreciative of the wider significance after reading the discussion. There are many ways to approach writing and several different structures that can be used. In this talk, she will provide strategies to begin drafting your paper and discuss common mistakes to avoid.
