STEM Journal Publishing: What’s an Editor to Do?

Join the UW Libraries for a panel discussion from four UW faculty members who are also journal editors. Geared toward graduate students, post-docs and librarians, the panelists will address a variety of issues of interest to current and future authors, as well as librarians. Possible questions for discussion include:

 What do you do as an editor?
 How did you become one?
 Where do you fit in the hierarchy of your journal?
 What does it take to get published in your field today?
 What is the impact of the increase in manuscripts being submitted today?
 How is peer review handled with your journal?
 Have you run into ethical issues, and, if so, how did you deal with them?
 What are some of the most common mistakes made by authors?
 What advice would you give an author preparing to submit her/his first paper?
 How is digital accessibility attained?
 How to manage traditional papers augmented with other content such as video or audio content?

Our panelists include:
Valerie Daggett: Professor, Bioengineering
Jody Deming: Professor, Oceanography and Professor, Astrobiology
Richard Ladner: Professor, Computer Science and Engineering
Randy Leveque: Professor, Applied Mathematics
