"How to write a world-class paper" is a very popular question for many researchers. Prof. S. TED OYAMA, being the Editor of J. Catal., will give us a comprehensive explanation on this question according to his rich experience, from experimental designing to the paper preparing. This is a great chance for us to learn how to prepare the world-class paper based on the Editor's point of view.
This two-hour workshop will focus on the subjects of writing / presenting results of science / engineering research. It will cover basic to advanced writing skills with a focus on the preparation of scientific papers. Attention will be placed on “English as Second Language” problems, specifically in students’ professional writings (from language structure to punctuation, and use of articles). Students will be introduced to the construction of various sections of articles (materials / methods / results / conclusions). An additional part of the course will address strategies and techniques for successfully submitting and revising manuscripts sent to top journals.
Prof. S. TED OYAMA currently has a dual appointment in the Chemical System Engineering Department at the University of Tokyo and in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Professor Oyama's education includes a B.S. from Yale University in 1976, an M.S. from Stanford University in 1977, and a Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1981.
Prof. S. TED OYAMA is now a fellow of American Chemical Society and the member of American Association for the Advancement of Science, Chemical Society of Japan, American Institution of Chemical Engineers, and IUPAC. He also serves as the Editor of Journal of Catalysis, the highest-ranked chemical engineering journal, and the editorial board member of Journal of Natural Gas Chemistry, Emirates Journal of Engineering.
Prof. S. TED OYAMA has been actively involved in the fundamental and applied research on Energy and Environmental Catalysis systems over the last thirty years. Specifically, his research typically focuses on Fuel Cell, Petroleum Chemistry, Membrane Separation Technology, Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysis. In the past years, Professor OYAMA has published about 220 papers in journals, 380 papers in conference proceedings and six edited books. The H factor is as high as 51.
Prof. S. TED OYAMA has also received many awards including Humboldt Research Award (2008), Alumni Award for Excellence in Research (2008), ACS Henry Storch Award (2014), ACS Distinguished Researcher Award and so on.
