“How to get Published” workshop at SciX
SAGE Publishing and the SAS will be holding a “How to get Published” session at SciX on Tuesday 20th September, 2:00-3:30pm in the Isles room and we would encourage those new to research or those wanting a refresher on publishing their work in journals to attend. Louisa Strain and Naomi Blumsom from SAGE and Kristin MacDonald the Managing Editor of Applied Spectroscopy will be speaking. The session will cover the fundamentals of preparing a manuscript for publication in an academic journal with direct reference to the SAS’s own journal Applied Spectroscopy. The session will include an overview of the publishing landscape; how the publishing landscape is evolving; how to select a relevant publication; preparing your manuscript for submission to a journal; an overview of the peer review process; publication ethics and author rights and how to promote your article once published.

Society for Applied Spectroscopy,
We wish to THANK YOU for your continued support and involvement as a member organization of the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS). The value of FACSS lies in the member organizations and the interactions and contributions of individuals is the foundation to our success. As we prepare for our annual meeting, this year in Minneapolis, we are again reaching out to you to help make your meeting a world class event. Three areas in particular where your organization can have an impact are: recruiting volunteers, encouraging attendance, and advertising.
FACSS and SciX always welcome new ideas and approaches as we look to the future of Analytical Chemistry. This is why we actively seek volunteers from member organizations to contribute to the planning and growth of FACSS. There are many opportunities to help with the meeting and the Federation. Please contact the FACSS office or us directly if you are interested in getting involved.
We are pleased to announce that SciX 2016 will be the co-meeting for the 23rd International Symposium on Electro and Liquid Phase Separation Techniques…ITP2016! This will bring a new level of excitement and interaction opportunities to the conference. The scientific program for SciX 2016 is rapidly coming together. The Plenary speakers are being locked-in and abstract submittal has begun. This year’s conference is shaping-up to be very exciting, which will include bonus sessions with world class speakers devoted to Nanotechnology, Surface Science, Women and Diversity in Chemical Sciences, Chemistry in Art and Technology and Easing World Poverty. In addition, the very popular FACSS Innovation Award Session which features selected presentations that are the most innovative, creative and outstanding work making its world debut at SciX will be held on Thursday, September 22nd. New for 2016 are hands-on STEM Focus Workshops for educators.
We highly encourage contributions from all the member societies. The Minneapolis location is a convenient to many universities and companies that share a common goal of enhancing out scientific knowledge through open discussions on our most challenging issues. Please reach out to any local contacts you may have to make them aware of the meeting.
Finally, we would like to THANK YOU for helping our web presence. We have enclosed an updated banner for you to add to your website, if you choose, and THANK YOU for already providing a link to SciX 2016!!! If the banner needs to be changed or updated at any point to meet your requirements, just let us know. We hope that each organization will encourage its members to join us as we plan for the future of FACSS.
Once again, THANK YOU for your continued support with the up-to-date link on your website and please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of service!
