    Session Agenda

    Every researcher aims to publish their work in established peer-reviewed scientific journals. However, publishing is no easy task, and manuscript rejection is a common occurrence in scholarly publishing. For a smooth publication journey, researchers must ensure that their manuscripts are well-structured and meet the high standards of academic writing before submission to an impactful journal. The Royal Society of Medicine in collaboration with Karger Publishers and Enago will conduct an interactive webinar that will help researchers improve their awareness about the peer review process, manuscript decisions, and common errors made by early-career researchers leading to rejection. Further, we will also help authors understand reviewers’ comments and share practical tips to revise and timely resubmit their manuscripts.

    Researchers will learn:

    • How to conduct a robust literature review
    • How to write each section of the manuscript
    • How to present research data effectively
    • Acknowledging sources properly
    • How to ensure research reproducibility
    • How to ensure fluency, clarity, and readability
    • Importance of editing and proofreading
    • Peer review process
    • How to address reviewer comments and make an effective appeal upon rejection

    What people have said about previous webinars

    I attended their see the future conference which was 2 day event. They had reputed speakers from the academic sector and a nobel laureate as their speakers who had a lot of valuable information to share. I thank Enago for the opportunity to attend.

    Dr. Paul Lavender

    Working with Enago is a pleasure from start to finish. The webinar was prepared with plenty of notice, well publicized, ran perfectly, and clear participant feedback was provided shortly afterwards. What more can you ask for?

    Dr. Tomas berdych

    Firstly, I regularly attend Enago’s webinars as they are very engaging. I find a lot of things in presented in their webinars to be very practical and useful in my research journey. They could also customize a webinar series for the university I teach. The webinars are helpful to the students in publishing better.

    Prof. Abdul Haaris

    The webinar that I attended on plagiarism and ethics was in depth and at the same time to the point. I got to learn a lot from these webinar and got my question answered. Thanks for this!
