In the final post in the series from the 2018 OSM meeting workshops, here I will discuss how (and why) effective reviewers contact Editors.
A key skill scientists can develop is the ability to write effective peer reviews. At the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting, journal editors led a session on how to do this, which is summarised here.
In the initial post in this series, I summarised the presentation on manuscript submission. Here I will focus on a key point explored in the ensuing discussion, specifically the issue of how to effectively resubmit a manuscript and the associated ‘response to reviewer comments’ document.
At the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Portland, Oregon, journal Editors participated in workshops about key publishing activities, specifically manuscript submission and peer review. In this blog post, and the next three to follow, I will be summarising the workshops.
With the February 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting approaching, I thought it would be the perfect time to approach an ASLO editor (Patricia Soranno, EIC, L&O: Letters) to talk about how editors view conferences and conversations with early career researchers at these events.
