ESP Webinar Series - The editor’s guide on sucessfull academic publishing
How can you increase your chances to get your manuscript published? Writing a scientific article is complex and demanding. It can be also frustrating. Many times is difficult to find a successful path towards publication. Indeed, the scientific publishing ecosystem is complex and can be overwhelming when you are starting your academic career. The aim of this webinar is to discuss with young scholars about key publishing aspects from the editorial point of view, to help a successful publication process. The workshop will be interactive. Using mentimeter (www.mentimeter.com) we will induce a structured discussion about the reviewer and the editor points of view. These two different angles may help to better understand and manage a manuscript to pass the screening of experts. The workshop is designed to be practical, providing guidelines for good practices and effective recommendations, as well as highlighting common errors and misunderstandings on the publishing process to be avoided. Goals and objectives:
