  • Choosing the right target journal and navigating editorial processes (CHINESE) Recorded: May 18 2017 64 mins
    Yang Gan
    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.
