Session 9 Track 2B: Secrets of the Editorial Office
Ann M Winter-Vann, PhD
Senior Medical Writer and Consultant
Whitsell Innovations, Inc., United States
Why do editorial offices insist on things being that way and why do different journals ask for things in quite different styles? How can you make your manuscript better? How can you ensure your article will be reviewed? The editorial office is actually there to help authors (though it might not always seem like it!). So come and find out what happens after your manuscript is submitted to a research journal.
Learning Objective : At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
Describe the process for review of a manuscript
Evaluate the editor’s role in the review process
Assess the need to adhere to submission requirements
