The ACerS Young Professionals Network (YPN), and the ACerS Publications Committee are co-hosting the August webinar, What happens after you click ‘submit?’ in the ACerS Professional Skills and Personal Development Webinar Series.

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

The peer review process plays a critical role in ensuring the quality and integrity of the scientific record. Our webinar panelists will share behind-the-scenes insights about how the manuscript review and decision-making process works based on their experience as the editors-in-chief of ACerS journals.

LEARNING OUTCOME

Publishing your research and staying abreast of the latest scientific advances is an important part of academic and professional development. This webinar will provide participants with:

  1. Information about the manuscript submission and review workflow and typical timelines
  2. Advice for authors to ensure smooth submission and review of their manuscripts
  3. Perspectives about what factors make reviewer comments most useful to editors to improve effectiveness as a manuscript reviewer
