A Conference Presentation

Not long after

June 6-11, 1953

Crick and Watson present a paper at a conference explaining their conclusions in more detail, but in a less polished version than required by a journal article. The paper is later published in the collected conference proceedings:

The Structure of DNA
Watson, J.D. and F.H.C. Crick (1953).
Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology, 18, 123-131.

Conference Paper Characteristics
AUDIENCE: Professors, scholars, and researchers in the field — provides an opportunity for the audience to hear about new research and provide informal critiques or suggestions about the research.
AUTHOR: Professor or researcher in the field.
TIMELINESS: Very up-to-date; conference papers often precede a published journal article.
CONTENT: Report on work in progress or present completed findings in a rough draft format. May be published later in collected conference proceedings or revised and published as a journal article — or may never be published at all.
