Katherine Eve is an Executive publisher at Elsevier, where she has worked since 2010. She has been responsible for the Renewable Energy and Fuels journal portfolio at Elsevier for over 2 years, before which she worked in the Earth Sciences group looking after Geochemistry & Geophysics journals. She has also worked at other well-known academic publishing houses.

Katie’s background is in Biochemistry, up to Masters (Oxon) level.


The programme for this event is structured to support researchers and their publication endeavours. It is based on a similar workshop organised at an international conference in September 2015 which was attended by over 50 participants despite the fact that it was organised for 8:00 a.m. on the day after the conference banquet. The attendees felt it was extremely useful and they learned a lot from the speaker. The session is intended for all researchers (PhD students, Post-Doctoral and academic researchers). Special emphasis will be on writing scientific articles and how to approach the review and publication process.


This will be an information-packed session covering all aspects of writing scientific articles; from the abstract to the references, from preparation to publication.

The session topics will include the following :

  • Why is it so important to write a good paper?
  • What is a good paper and how do I write one?
  • How do I decide where to submit my paper?
  • What happens during review?
  • What do I need to do to publish ethically?
