Research Masterclass - What makes an A* paper and how Might I aim for the First one?

Research Masterclass - What makes an A* paper and how Might I aim for the First one? , Emeritus Professor Philip Broadbridge
04 OCT 2022
2.00 PM - 4.00 PM
Online via Zoom

Participants will be asked to bring their own ideas on what are the attributes of one or two papers that have been instrumental in their own research or research education.  After a short introduction and outline, the presenter will compare participants' own ideas with those in his own list of attributes. He will then give a couple of exemplary articles that he has encountered in his work as a journal editor. Then there will be discussion on how might one get to that level as an author of research articles, and how this relates to regular good research practice. Finally, the presenter will list common pitfalls that lead to rejection. Round off with open discussion. 


Philip Broadbridge holds a doctorate in mathematical physics from the University of Adelaide. For 28 years he was a full professor of applied mathematics at University of Wollongong, University of Delaware, University of Melbourne and La Trobe University. In 2022 he was awarded the ANZIAM Medal and the AMSI Medal. Much of his professional work has involved mathematical modelling in other disciplines: hydrology, thermodynamics, chemistry, industrial processing, population biology and finance. 

Currently he is chief mathematics Subject Editor for the prestigious Proceedings of the Royal Society of London Series A. He is also on editorial boards of four other journals.
