The peer review process – what happens when you send your manuscript to a journal

Have you ever wondered what the journal editor’s viewpoint is on your article, or what happens once you send your manuscript to a journal? This webinar will provide an overview of the peer review process with advice for authors on how to engage constructively with comments from editors and reviewers, and what to do when you disagree.

  • What happens during the peer review process
  • Models of peer review, why you should care
  • What Editors and reviewers are looking for

  • How to respond to reviewers’ and editors’ comments
  • Dealing with rejection
