Behind the Scenes at the Editor’s Office: Understanding the Peer Review Process to Improve your Odds of Manuscript Acceptance

Randolph J. Nudo, PhD, Editor-in-Chief,
Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair


Webinar Description:
After spending months, and often years, producing data and generating ideas from an exciting research project, the single-most important objective is to communicate findings to your peers. However, writing research papers for academic journals is very competitive. Most journals reject the majority of papers before they even go out for full review. In the end, only a small fraction can be accepted for publication. Understanding the full breadth of the peer-review process from an editor’s perspective can provide you with helpful insights that will ultimately improve your odds at getting your papers accepted. Dr. Nudo, Editor-in-Chief of Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair (NNR), shares his advice on how to write a clear and concise paper that attracts the attention of journal editors and garners interest among your peers: an opportunity to understand what editors like—and what they do not!

Dr. Nudo will discuss his own personal journey through the world of scientific publishing—from journal reader to author, reviewer and editor. He shares his experiences and strategies for deciding what goes out for review, and how he utilizes a team of associate editors to oversee manuscript reviews. You will learn the fundamentals of what happens to your paper behind the scenes while you anxiously await the results. Lastly, Dr. Nudo offers his tips on how to become an effective reviewer. Ample time is provided for specific questions that you may have regarding the peer review process.

Registration for this webinar is open to the public.
