EVERYTHING from drafting manuscripts to journal selection and successful publication that you don’t have an answer for!
Behind the Scenes with Editors-in-Chief, conducted as a part of Enago’s “Ask the Editors-in-Chief” webinar series, aims to answer critical questions including who takes the final call to reject a manuscript, what exactly are editors and reviewers looking for, and what researchers can and cannot ask the editors during the course of submission and review.
This interactive session featured Duncan Nicholas, President of the European Association of Science Editors and former Managing Editor at Taylor and Francis; James Wicker, Editor of Research in Astronomy and Astrophysics, published by the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences; and Wei Kong, Chair & Professor of Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Peking University Health Science Center. In this session, the speakers also answer the questions from the audience and provide guidance on how researchers can prepare for unforeseen challenges and simplify their journey to successful publication.
The discussions focus on the following topics:
- Who decides whether a manuscript is desk-rejected and on what basis?
- What is the acceptable standard for English language quality?
- Can authors approach the editors for help during the journal review process?
- What should authors do if plagiarized content is reported by the journal editors?
- Should authors follow the journal editor’s suggestion to transfer a rejected article to a sister journal?
- When do academic journals retract articles and how authors should handle it?
We also received some very interesting questions from the participants. Click here to find the responses shared by our experts.
