Workshop Topics

Topic 1: Identifying the Target Journal for Publication

In today’s scientific landscape when researchers have to publish their research in order to sustain their academic careers, the process of selecting a good journal is a crucial step towards showcasing their research to the right target audience. Owing to an exponential increase in the number of journals over the last decade, selecting an appropriate journal has become increasingly difficult. This presentation is primarily targeted towards early-stage researchers who wish to publish their research, but find it difficult to select an appropriate journal for their manuscript.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

  • Understanding the scope, visibility and discoverability of a journal
  • Assessing the quality of a journal and a basic understanding of some key journal metrics
  • Introduction to important concepts such as copyrights, open access and peer review
  • Expert tips and a list of tools for selecting an appropriate target journal

Topic 2: Dealing with Journal Rejection

This presentation is primarily targeted toward helping researchers in handing rejections from journals, and will also help early-stage researchers improve first-time acceptance of their manuscripts. The advancement of research hinges on the dissemination of new discoveries by their publication in peer-reviewed international journals. At the heart of academic publishing, peer review leads to over 1.5 million published scholarly manuscripts every year. Although the number of published papers is increasing year-on-year, this iterative selection process also results in approximately 60% rejection rate, including 21% rejection after preliminary editorial screening.

After this session, you will have more information about the following:

  • Awareness of the rejection process and why papers of ESL authors are rejected by journals (regardless of the impact factor)
  • Understanding the peer review process and causes of rejection
  • Comprehending rejection letters and what reviewers mean
  • Importance of correctly responding to reviewer comments and revising their papers to make them publication ready
  • Overcoming journal rejection and providing a positive outlook to deal with journal rejection
