Publishing the results of one’s research is an integral part of the scientific process, yet scholarly journals are often seen as black boxes by researchers. What happens to a paper after it is submitted? Who is deciding on its fate? What is the role of the journal editor and the editorial office? How does the peer-review process work, and are its core principles still relevant in today’s changing publishing landscape? In this talk, Matteo Cavalleri, PhD, will endeavor to discuss these and other aspects of scientific publishing from a journal editor’s perspective, the peer-review process, and he will share his experience going from the research lab to the “other side” of scientific publishing.
Matteo Cavalleri, PhD, is the managing editor for The American Ceramic Society’s Journal portfolio, and is editor-in-chief, International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, at John Wiley & Sons, in Hoboken, NJ.
