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.

When a journal editor reads a newly submitted paper, what things do they look for? What makes them decide to send one paper for review, but reject another paper immediately? A poorly written paper or misunderstanding of journal guidelines may mean you don’t get published in the journal your work deserves.

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.

One of the most common reasons for manuscript rejection is that the manuscript does not match the journal’s scope. This results in consequent delays in publication. Through this session, we will share some useful tips on how you can ensure that you select the right journal.
This webinar is being conducted by Editage in partnership with the Institute of Physics.
Are you confused about which journal to submit your research manuscript to? Do you need tips on how to select the right journal for your manuscript to increase your chances of acceptance?

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.

This webinar will highlight some of the contributions recently published in the British Ecological Society journals Special Feature entitled "Demography Beyond the Population". This Special Feature was a collaborative effort including articles in all six BES journals. This is the first time such a large ecological collaboration has been attempted worldwide. This cross-journal approach has allowed us to highlight the strongly interdisciplinary nature of the field of demography to its fullest potential as well as to lay down the foundations for future directions at the interface of ecology, evolution, conservation biology and human welfare. The webinar has several international speakers and will discuss the articles in the Special Feature and the implications for demography research going forward.Read more >

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.

Today, more and more journals, publishers, funders, and institutions are supporting open access. This webinar explains the benefits of publishing in the open access journal Medicine®, Wolter Kluwer’s broad-spectrum open access publication. It will also provide basic general guide on what open access is, its features, and how it works.Read more >

HSJ invites you to view and participate in an exclusive “Innovations in Healthcare” webinar, in association with the Healthcare Advisory Forum and sponsored by Oracle.
Quality, cost and the rise in long term conditions are forcing all health and care providers around the world to reassess how services can be delivered more efficiently and to consistently higher standards. Most have concluded that whilst technology is not the only answer, it is invariably part of the solution.
The NHS faces additional cost pressures – the “Nicholson Challenge” to find £20bn of savings over the next four years. Many believe this can be achieved only by “reimagining the front door” to healthcare and enabling patient involvement and decision-making.
Some of the key questions our debate will explore include:
•The existing system – where are we now, how did we get here, and what are the challenges as we move forwards?
•Can technology contribute to the greater integration of healthcare services? What are the potential gains and challenges?
•How can IT-enabled care support patient empowerment and allow patients to take control of their own care?
• How are assistive technologies being used at the moment and what would be the best-case scenario?
• In what ways can the health service use technology to transform the management of long-term conditions?
• What are the budget implications to all of this? Can innovation be ignored as a game changer?
