The Do's and Don'ts of Writing a Good Paper - Recommendations from a former Editor in Chief

13 November 2020, 10:30 AM EST (-5:00 UTC)

Abstract: Congratulations! Your chip finally works and now you want to write a paper about it. Now you wonder: “Where to start? What will be my title? Shall I put a lot of measured numbers in the title, or make it fancy marketing style? What should the introduction be about? What should I present as measurements? Which numbers are important to show? How to compare to the state of art?” These are questions that arise when writing your paper. And when finally done, it comes back with a lot of reviewer’s comments. Some are mild while some may trash your hard work below ground level. How to deal with that? How can you smoothly bend the critics to something positive in your paper? And if the reviewer did not understand what you actually meant to say, what can you do to fix this? How to understand the viewpoints of the reviewers? This lecture is about the Do’s and Don’ts of writing a paper with a focus on the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society’s publications. Also, there will be room for questions & discussions.
