CORROSION journal is eagerly anticipating its 75th anniversary in 2019 and would like to celebrate by sharing the stories of some of the scientists and engineers who have contributed to its excellent reputation and longevity. If you have been an author, associate or guest editor, or reviewer for the journal, we'd like to hear your professional story, either in video, or in print if you're camera shy.  Here are some questions to help you create your narrative. These are just a guide. You don't need to answer all of them. Just focus on the questions that best tell your story.

  • Introduce yourself: your name, job title.
  • What did you want to be growing up? Compare that to what you do now.
  • How did you first get involved in the corrosion field? Why are you a corrosion scientist or engineer?
  • What is so captivating about corrosion? What aspect of corrosion gets you excited every day? What do you most enjoy about your work?
  • Who inspires your work? Who are/were the most important scientists in your field of study and how did they impact your career and work?
  • What are the most promising advances in your field today that keep you enthusiastic about your work?
  • What has been your greatest scientific or research challenge?
  • What professional accomplishments are you most proud of? What would you like your corrosion legacy to be?
  • If you have written and published an article for the journal, how has it affected your career?
  • How has CORROSION content contributed to your research?
  • Why have you given your time and talents in service to CORROSION journal?

We would welcome your 2-3 minute video story and the easiest way to do it is to:

  • use your cell phone in the "landscape" mode,
  • find a relatively quiet space with minimal backgrounds,
  • and tell us about yourself as if we were meeting for the first time.

Cell phones provide video as MP4, which is the ideal format and resolution.

If you are telling us your story in print, please include a hi-resolution (300 dpi) photo of yourself. Please keep your submission to 1,000 words or less.
