    • An introduction to best practices for refereeing a journal manuscript
      An introduction to best practices for refereeing a journal manuscript Professor Simon Cherry, University of California, Davis, USA Recorded: Feb 13 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Peer review is one of the most critical components of high-quality scientific publishing. It impacts on the timeliness, accuracy and clarity of research findings that—if published—will be accessible and visible to everyone for years to come.

      At its best, the peer-review process establishes whether the work makes a genuine and valuable contribution to the literature, and can remove errors and help authors to better explain their results and the significance of their work to the broad audience who may read the final journal article. At its worst, however, inadequate or superficial peer review can allow substandard work or poorly explained research to be published, which is to the detriment of the scientific enterprise. In addition, the peer-review process can also impede the publication of high-quality work through unnecessary delays or personal bias.

      The goal of this webinar is to address best practices for reviewing a journal manuscript and address some of the challenges and pitfalls that frequently crop up during the peer review process. This webinar is aimed at those new to serving as a referee for a scientific journal – whether that be more generally, within the field of medical physics, or for Physics in Medicine & Biology specifically.

    • Choosing the right target journal and navigating editorial processes (CHINESE)
      Choosing the right target journal and navigating editorial processes (CHINESE) Yang Gan Recorded: May 18 2017 12:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Choosing the target journal is undoubtedly a major challenge for many authors. Should you choose an interdisciplinary journal? A top-tier journal in your field? Or an open-access journal?

      The popular impact factor should by no means be the sole factor in making this decision. The important questions are who the audience of your work is and where your work will create maximum impact!

      The right time to decide on the target journal(s) is well before you finish a manuscript. And once you have decided on the journal, the next challenge is to navigate the editorial process—which seems like a black-box. Editorial processes rely on effective interactions between authors, editors, and peer reviewers. Having a basic understanding of these processes may save you months of time, by helping you avoid unnecessary revisions or even rejections.

      This webinar will provide a practical guide on choosing the right target journal and will demystify editorial processes from the perspective an experienced scholar and journal editor.

      NOTE: This webinar will be delivered in CHINESE.

    • Optimise Medical Publishing and Avoid "Predatory Journals"
      Optimise Medical Publishing and Avoid "Predatory Journals" Janet Galliera, Executive Director Business Development, PubsHub, an ICON plc company Recorded: May 9 2017 2:30 pm UTC 52 mins
    • Open access journals are scholarly publications, available across the internet. They are freely accessible, with no subscription costs. From 2012 to 2017, the number of open access journals increased from 4,034 to 9,405. [1]

      While open access journals bring clear cost and accessibility advantages, it is important for authors to be able to accurately assess the quality and reputation of any potential publisher.

      What are predatory publishers?
      Predatory publishers are profiteering individuals or companies, who use the open access publishing model to take advantage of and exploit authors, by charging them article processing fees without providing the high quality editorial services associated with legitimate journals [2]. The term “predatory publisher” was first coined by Jeffrey Beall, who tracked them on his Scholarly Open Access blog from 2012 until January 2017.

      Speakers: Jeffrey Beall, Scholarly Communications Librarian and Associate Professor, University of Colorado Denver; Janet Galliera, Executive Director Business Development, PubsHub, an ICON plc company; Nicolle Watts,
      Database Manager, PubsHub an ICON plc company

    • Journal Entry: Curing Common SAP Financial Pains with Excel
      Journal Entry: Curing Common SAP Financial Pains with Excel Melissa Neil - SAP Product Manager, Simon Parkes - SAP Solution Consultant Recorded: May 24 2017 11:00 am UTC 59 mins
    • Are you or your finance users struggling with time constraints in entering manual FI/CO type entries into SAP? Are you limited by your current financial custom uploading tool? Don’t worry, there is a cure.

      Entering financial or journal entries into SAP efficiently is essential to managing all aspects of your business, yet manually keying all those entries (one line at a time) into inflexible SAP T-code entry screens can be time consuming and painful. The IT Department can build your staff a home-grown custom loader for loading journal entry information into SAP; however, these batch loaders tend to be limited and inflexible, don’t handle errors well, and require ongoing IT support and maintenance. It is merely a band aid to a larger issue.

      GLSU is an Excel add-in for uploading financial data into SAP. It streamlines financial data entry and reporting without the dependency on IT making it the ultimate cure. Additional GLSU features include:
      1. Park and Post all from Excel
      2. Sophisticated error handling and business logic
      3. Excel templates created and modified in seconds with no programming or scripting.

      Attend this webinar to learn:
      • What current SAP financial uploading tools are often used today
      • The limitations for SAP users in their current FI/CO entry process
      • How GLSU, a financial spreadsheet uploader for SAP, can help reduce the manual waste and increase efficiency.

    • Getting published in a high-impact journal: Tips from a senior journal editor
      Getting published in a high-impact journal: Tips from a senior journal editor Dr. Caven Mcloughlin Recorded: Jun 23 2017 12:00 am UTC 61 mins
    • It is never easy to get a foothold onto the academic ladder. And, maintaining that foothold requires one to have articles accepted by strong journals.
      Some researchers seem forever to stumble and miss seeing the obvious. Professor Mcloughlin will share his experiences by pointing to some all-too-frequently encountered barriers to publishing success. From his perspective as a long-time journal editor, he will share ‘insider-knowledge’ about the most common mistakes made when submitting manuscripts. Errors can doom the prospects of a submission before it even gets sent out for full review. Sadly, slipups are equally a feature of veterans’ submissions as well as those new to publishing.
      The webinar will draw attention to elements entirely different from those presumed by most authors to be important for generating a journal acceptance. Authors tend to focus on detail and ‘telling the story’ of their investigation. Editors focus on sharing big-ideas; on context, format & structure; on consistency with their journal’s mission; and with compliance to publishing conventions. Displayed in this webinar are the features sought by editors and by reviewers. It can be frustrating for editors and reviewers to receive submissions that have a kernel of clear value but with the value obscured by gaffes ~ simply because the author fails to perceive their work as an editor will see it.
      Editors are less likely to gamble on an author who displays naivety and unsophistication in communicating their research. Gaining an editor’s confidence by delivering what is expected helps buttress the presumption that as an author you are competent and credible as a researcher. The basic message? Align your submission fully consistent with editorial-team’s expectations.

      Note that the webinar will be in English

    • For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:

      What is your relationship with research?

      Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.

      Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
