It was a busy month for all in March 2016! A total of nine talks on various topics on publishing were conducted throughout this period in NTU and NIE.
The NIE Library collaborated with NTU Libraries and publishers in organising the academic publishing talks. This annual event aims to support academic staff, researchers and higher degree students in successfully navigating the changing world of scholarly communication and publishing, and help them to achieve their academic publishing goals.
In the talk “So You Want to be a Writer?” held at NIE, Mr Chua Hong Koon, Publishing Director of World Scientific Publishing (Singapore) shared many useful tips on publishing for would-be writers, such as:
- Finding the right publisher for the book;
- Reading the author agreement carefully before you sign;
- Completing the script in time; and
- Working with the publisher to promote the book.
