Inventions, Innovations and Publications: An Academic Perspective         

Presented by Ozgur Yavuzcetin, Associate Professor, Physics

Live-streamed here: 

As a STEM faculty at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI), we are expected to do well in three main areas; teaching, service and research. One measure of success in research could be in terms of peer reviewed publications or the grants received, also the inventions (patents) acquired. I will first talk about the main differences between inventions and innovations. Then I will talk about the academic meaning of “publish or perish” and some academic challenges of publishing high quality research. Finally, I will give examples from my own research with students at UWW and the inventions I have worked on, introducing the recent educational invention, “Modified Newton’s Cradle.”
