Randy W. Schekman

University of California, Berkeley
2013 Nobel Prize Winner

Title of the presentation: The challenge of publishing your most important work in 21st Century

Back to Plenary Lectures »

Chairman's Note:

  • Prof. Randy Schekman coincidently has a similar family name with Prof. Dan Shechtman. Although they do not personally know each other and are not related in any way in their family tree or in their strict research area, they have a lot in common: They are both Nobel Prize winners (Schekman in 2013 & Shechtman in 2011) and they have the same scientific courage.
  • Probably all scientists and academics have wondered where to publish a scientific achievement or discovery. They always tend to target some specific journals that are somehow well known following some certain criteria or have a high impact factor (a new criteria of the internet era). The scientists also frequently wander about the uncertainties of publishing in somehow well-known journals in which their peers and competitors are in the review board.
  • In his very interesting General Plenary Lecture Prof. Randy Schekman will give a unique and original view on how important but also how challenging is publishing an original scientific work. Prof. Schekman breaks with the taboos and stereotypes and gives a new convincing picture on the real value of an original scientific work and its need of being published.
  • This Lecture is so pertinent with the story of Prof. Dan Shechtman whom we are honoring in this summit. Prof. Dan Shechtman's first manuscript dealing with the discovery of quasi crystals was refused for publication from a very well-known journal but he got the Nobel Price many years later for the same discovery.
