Presented by Community of Scholars, Jonathan McCall will help demystify the publishing process—from the nuts and bolts of manuscript preparation to the nuances of the review process – highlighting practical issues that are often learned the hard way by first-time authors. A communications professional with more than 14 years of experience guiding scholarly works into print, Jonathan will address a number of issues essential to successful publication, including:
- How to manage the role of being a first/corresponding author
- Journal selection; understanding impact factors
- Dealing with the complexities of submitting a viable manuscript (including open access options)
- How to manage responding to review and resubmission
- What are preprints, and what are their advantages and disadvantages
- Managing datasets and complying with data access policies; the concept of the dataset as the publishable unit
- Avoiding predatory publishers
- Copyright/intellectual property, and implications for authors
This 1.5-hour session will include both lecture and discussion, allowing ample dialogue regarding different publishing scenarios that a new scholar might encounter.
