24 September, 1:00 - 2:00 PM (CST)Register Now
Researchers may be good at drafting their manuscript while strictly adhering to the journal’s guidelines; they may still face challenges in fulfilling the journals’ submission requirements and successfully completing the submission process. In this webinar, we will discuss how authors can avoid making incomplete and incorrect submissions to journals leading to immediate rejection and the importance of publication ethics. We will also discuss ways in which authorship dilemma and pre-submission queries can be addressed. Furthermore, we will cover how plagiarism is detected by journals, how published content can be re-used by researchers, and clarify the copyright-related concerns of authors.
Through this webinar, researchers will learn:
- Effective tips on preparing a submission-ready manuscript
- How to avoid ethical dilemmas about authorship decisions?
- Copyright for journal articles, pre-prints, and conference papers
- Awareness of ethical guidelines that should be considered before submission
- Information regarding online submission systems
- How to write a compelling cover letter for your manuscript?
