Publishing strategies in materials science will be discussed from the editors perspective. Journal portraits will be presented for the Wiley-VCH Materials Science publications Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Small, and the newer titles Advanced Energy Materials, Advanced Healthcare Materials, and Particle. Publishing in an online age will be discussed, including the role of scientific journals, the editorial process (with a focus on the peer-review process), and a discussion of discoverability. Hints for your publishing strategy will then be presented, including how to choose the right journal and maximize your success. Discussion and questions are encouraged.
