ACS Publications set off to NIT Calicut in India on September 7, 2018, to meet with local early career researchers and students.

Professor Dey shared best practices on scholarly publishing and delivered his lecture on “Communicating Science in Popular Writing Format,” while Professor Pradeep talked at length about the ins and outs of peer review. Professor Pradeep’s scientific lecture on “Reactions Between Nanoparticles” captivated the audience.
The program saw participation from more than 120 early career researchers and faculty members from the institution. Attendees were able to interact with the event’s featured speakers, as well as ACS staff in attendance. They were able to share insights and discuss the positive impact that ACS Publications is making to the research output of NIT Calicut.
