The overall goal of this event is to dispel certain myths associated with journal publications (such as moderate impact factors or unacceptably long timelines to publication), while starting a dialogue between the main visualization journal editorial boards and the visualization community at large. The panelists will present and discuss five visualization journal venues available to researchers for disseminating their work. The goal is to inform the visualization audience of challenges from both sides and encourage a discussion for how to optimize the publication and editing process. Ultimately we hope to connect people and to promote interaction between them.
Each panelist will have up to 10 minutes to present and quantitatively compare their journal with the others in terms of mission, scope, impact factors, refereeing procedure, numbers of papers published, acceptance rates and publication timelines, in order to establish the context for the audience. The rest of the time will be open for questions. Questions may also be submitted (below) in advance or during the event.
To submit a question you will need to click "EDIT" on the left side panel on this page, then enter your Compass username and password. Remember to Save the page when done.
