Claus Roll, is the Director, Europe for Optica (formerly OSA), which he joined at the beginning of 2020. His tasks comprise developing, building and sustaining relationships and connections with Optica members and customers in northern Europe. First European based initiatives have been started following these discussions.

Prior to working for Optica, was working during the 20 years for several STM publishers, managing mainly journals in the bio-medical domain, but also in physics. This activity brought him deep insights to all aspects of the scientific publishing, including research assessment and evaluation in various countries and scientific domains.

Before joining the positions in scientific publishing, Claus obtained a PhD degree in molecular biophysics, working on structure determination of DNA helixes by NMR and molecular dynamics.

Join us for an engaging workshop on scientific writing, hosted by Optica’s Director, Europe. This workshop aims to provide valuable insights into various aspects of article preparation, including article structure, journal selection, and ethical considerations throughout the experimental and publishing phases.

In addition to Optica’s Director, Europe, two esteemed Editors from Optica journals will also be present to share their expertise. They will shed light on the Editors’ expectations when assessing submitted manuscripts and provide valuable information about the peer review process. Furthermore, they will discuss the authors’ role and involvement in this crucial process.

One of the highlights of the workshop is a practical exercise where participants will have the opportunity to write an abstract. Based on the information shared during the workshop, participants will craft an abstract, and both the Editors and workshop facilitators will provide guidance and advice. Participants are encouraged to bring their own abstracts or any other relevant material they are currently working on to enhance their practical experience.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to enhance your scientific writing skills and gain valuable insights from experts in the field. Join us for this informative and interactive workshop on scientific writing.
