    The UCSF community has a wealth of knowledge related to research and getting research results published. This month, two events sponsored by the Chancellor’s Council on Faculty Life and the Library feature three journal editors from UCSF and the University Librarian. These scholars will provide relevant insight into the important process of turning research results into a publishable journal article. These presentations aim to engage and help faculty, students, and researchers navigate the often complicated path to publishing. Both sessions will allow time for Q&A.
