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?
