Research publications have always been key to building a successful career in science, yet little if any formal guidance is offered to young scientists on how to get research papers peer reviewed, accepted, and published by leading scientific journals. With What Editors Want, Philippa J. Benson and Susan C. Silver, two well-respected editors from the science publishing community, remedy that situation with a clear, straightforward guide that will be of use to all scientists. Benson and Silver instruct readers on how to identify the journals that are most likely to publish a given paper, how to write an effective cover letter, how to avoid common pitfalls of the submission process, and how to effectively navigate the all-important peer review process, including dealing with revisions and rejection. With supplemental advice from more than a dozen experts, this book will equip scientists with the knowledge they need to usher their papers through publication.

This report is the proceedings of a 2003 symposium on "Electronic Scientific, Technical, and Medical Journal Publishing and Its Implications," which brought together experts in STM publishing, both producers and users of these publications, to: (1) identify the recent technical changes in publishing, and other factors, that influence the decisions of journal publishers to produce journals electronically; (2) identify the needs of the scientific, engineering, and medical community as users of journals, whether electronic or printed; (3) discuss the responses of not-for-profit and commercial STM publishers and of other stakeholders in the STM community to the opportunities and challenges posed by the shift to electronic publishing; and (4) examine the spectrum of proposals that has been put forth to respond to the needs of users as the publishing industry shifts to electronic information production and dissemination.

What Editors Do

The Art, Craft, and Business of Book Editing

Editing is an invisible art where the very best work goes undetected. Editors strive to create books that are enlightening, seamless, and pleasurable to read, all while giving credit to the author. This makes it all the more difficult to truly understand the range of roles they inhabit while shepherding a project from concept to publication. In What Editors Do, Peter Ginna gathers essays from twenty-seven leading figures in book publishing about their work. Representing both large houses and small, and encompassing trade, textbook, academic, and children’s publishing, the contributors make the case for why editing remains a vital function to writers—and readers—everywhere. Ironically for an industry built on words, there has been a scarcity of written guidance on how to actually approach the work of editing. This book will serve as a compendium of professional advice and will be a resource both for those entering the profession (or already in it) and for those outside publishing who seek an understanding of it. It sheds light on how editors acquire books, what constitutes a strong author-editor relationship, and the editor’s vital role at each stage of the publishing process—a role that extends far beyond marking up the author’s text. This collection treats editing as both art and craft, and also as a career. It explores how editors balance passion against the economic realities of publishing. What Editors Do shows why, in the face of a rapidly changing publishing landscape, editors are more important than ever.

Editorial and authorial voices in EFL academic journal publishing

"This volume of work is intended as a natural successor to "Accepting alternative voices in EFL journal articles" (Nunn & Adamson, 2009) in which we looked into the possibilities of challenging the standard evaluation criteria and review procedure for EFL journal submissions to the Asian EFL Journal. Continuing this exploration into issues impacting upon academic publishing in EFL, chapters 2-6 pursue the issue of authorial voice where there seems to be an increasing consensus that a first person voice has a legitimate role beyond the humanities field. In chapters 7 to 9, the focus shifts to the wider perspectives of the journal reviewer or editor as researcher, exploring issues which directly shape their academic world views. This is an essential step in recognizing that research is necessary to both raise awareness of journal staff about authorial voice in publishing, especially those of non-Anglophone scholars, and also about how reviewers and editors construct their own identity, how they perceive their responsibilities and how they position the journals for which they work."--John Adamson.

Publishing high quality and widely available journals promotes high standards of scholarship in research and development; encourages the development of an international community of researchers who communicate regularly; and makes scientific and development communication clear and easily available. Experience in Africa and other developing countries has consistently revealed low standards in journal publishing, which is often irregular or unsustainable. There are weaknesses in management and poor financial viability, and a scarcity of practical information about journal publishing. This book aims to address these constraints and needs, and strengthen the publishing efficiency of journal editors and publishers. It is intended for young and experienced editors and publishers of journals in agricultural and rural development in developing countries, especially those of Africa; and should also provide a useful starting point for persons wishing to develop careers in agricultural journal editing and publishing.
