  First, we will discuss the steps towards writing an effective scientific/technical paper.This includes developing collecting and organizing the data, writing an outline, writing the main body of the paper, developing the title, abstract, references and an effective TOC graphic.Then we will turn to discuss peer-review process as it is implemented at ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.Various topics related to the peer-review process will be discussed, including suggesting reviewers, how to respond to reviewer comments, what to do when a paper is rejected, and how best to communicate with an Editor.
