Elsevier Attends APS Conference for Women in Physics

By: , Posted on: January 16, 2015

collageOn Sunday, January 18, representatives from Elsevier will participate in the APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, hosted by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, one of 8 such conferences nationwide. As part of the programming for the last day of the conference, students will attend a panel discussion on career options, which will include Knovel Product Manager Dr. Amita Raval sharing her experience transitioning from a career in physics research to a career in publishing and product development.

This panel will provide students with insight into career tracks they may be interested in once they’ve received their degrees. She has shared her professional experiences before in the form of blog posts she wrote three years ago about her time working at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva:

Just before the panel, Senior Acquisitions Editor Katey Birtcher and Editorial Project Manager Marisa LaFleur will host a booth at the conference’s Graduate School and Career Fair, providing more information to students interested in the field of academic publishing.

We are excited to be a part of encouraging young women to consider career options involving academic publishing, whether as authors, editors, or journals managers. The options available to them are wide and diverse, and we look forward to welcoming them to the work force in the coming years.

For more information on STEM careers for women, see our blog posts: Success Strategies from Women in STEM “Book in Press” Party and Women In STEM: Q&A with Dr. Denise Faustman of MGH

One of the oldest scientific disciplines, the study of physics continues to expand the scope of human understanding, from the nano-scale to the dimensions of our universe. Elsevier’s extensive collection of physics books, journals and resources represents the expanding nature of this deep, wide, and interdisciplinary field. We offer major reference works, textbooks, monographs, series, and handbooks covering areas such as optics; atomic, molecular and plasma physics; condensed-matter physics; non-linear, statistical and applied physics; and surfaces and interfaces.
