How it Works - Abstracts and Pre-prints


Abstracts that fit most closely with the themes of the meeting will be selected for oral presentations. Authors of the selected abstracts will then be invited to submit their work as a full paper, which will form the basis of their short presentation at the meeting. The paper itself must contain new, unpublished work and be submitted by 22 February 2010. The papers selected for presentation and discussion will be refereed and then sent to all participants as preprints.

Preprints will be issued four weeks in advance of the meeting. The discussion will be conducted on the assumption that the papers have been read in advance and only five minutes will be allowed for each presentation. Most of the time will be devoted to discussion, which is then submitted for publication in the Faraday Discussion Volume which will be published by the RSC about six months after the meeting.

The latest ISI citation data give an impact factor for Faraday Discussions of 4.604, emphasising their importance as a forum for developing exciting new ideas.
