Editor insights: Publishing in Mathematical Sciences
What the event covered
We put a spotlight on how to get published in the field of Mathematical Science with insight from one of our editors. We invited Professor Martin Bohner, Editor in Chief of Applied Mathematics in Science and Engineering, to give his insight on the publishing landscape within his field. And to share his editor’s perspective on what researchers can do to make their submissions more successful.
We were also joined by Thomas Elrod, Portfolio Manager for this subject area, who began the session by going through a basic overview of the current state of academic publishing. This included going through the process of getting an article published in the Mathematical Sciences.
This webinar was organized for researchers with little or no previous publishing experience, and those who are seeking to engage more closely with the scholarly discourse.
This continued the Taylor & Francis Researcher Webinar Series 2023, and it was held on Pi Day, to join the conversation on the celebration of mathematics.
About the speakers

A graduate of Dickinson College and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he has worked in academic publishing since 2011.
Martin Bohner is the Curators’ Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri, USA. He received the BS (1989) and MS (1993) in Econo-mathematics and PhD (1995) from University Ulm, Germany, and MS (1992) in Applied Mathematics from San Diego State University. He was a Postdoc, sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation, at National University of Singapore (1997) and at San Diego State University (1998).
Martin is a Past President of ISDE, the International Society of Difference Equations. His research interests center around differential, difference, and dynamic equations as well as their applications to economics, finance, biology, physics, and engineering. He is the author of seven textbooks and more than 350 publications, Editor-in-Chief of three international journals, and Associate Editor for almost 100 international journals. His work has been cited more than 18000 times in the literature, including more than 5000 citations of his book “Dynamic Equations on Time Scales: An Introduction with Applications”, co-authored with Professor Allan Peterson.
