Publishing research in well-known peer-reviewed publications is one way that researchers build a reputation in their community and allow the wide dissemination of their work. NSU faculty members are familiar with this process; however, listening from the leading publisher is something different and effective too. A good number of faculty members from different disciplines attended the workshop. The workshop ended with an interactive Question/Answer session.
