One of the key activities scientists undertake is writing. There is much advice out there on how to write, with many books published in the last year alone. Here, I discuss some of these books and what they cover, to help you choose the one that will help you write more effectively.
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.
