How to get published – Session supported by Elsevier 

Speaker: Sarah Rodrigues, Netherlands

Knowing the best way of structuring your paper when writing it, and the most appropriate journal to send it to, really
helps in getting your paper accepted. Also understanding how editors and publishers think and what they expect, and
knowing how the peer review process works, is invaluable insight into the publishing process. After attending this Elsevier
Publishing Research Academy Workshop series, participants will have a clear idea of the steps needed to be taken before
starting to write a paper. They will also be able to plan writing manuscripts using the logical step sequence – not the
sequence in which the paper will be read. Authors are also made aware of what aspects of their papers Editors, Reviewers,
and Publishers look at critically, and to ensure that in taking care of these areas, their papers are much more likely
to be accepted. Dealing with referees’ comments and the art of polite rebuttal are also described such that these can be
used to improve the submitted paper suitably. Sensitive areas such as publishing ethics, plagiarism, duplicate publishing,
etc are also clearly explained such that participants have a clear understanding of what their responsibilities are, what is
allowed, and what is not permitted.
