I've Completed the Research, Compiled the Results and Written My Manuscript: Now What? Behind the Scenes at an Editorial Office.
This workshop, designed for graduate students, early-career scientists, or those new to publishing, is intended to give a brief yet detailed look at what happens from manuscript submission to final publication in a scientific journal. Questions to be addressed include: How do I identify the best journal for my manuscript? What should I include---and not include---in my cover letter? What can I expect in the manuscript submission process? What common pitfalls can I avoid? What happens during the peer-review process? What should be included in the response-to-reviews letter? What does the editor expect from me as a reviewer? What happens when the manuscript is sent to production (or why am I discouraged from making major changes in proof)? The session is designed to give the new-to-publishing researcher a chance to see what happens before and after they hit "Submit" for their manuscript submission.
