Meet the Editor: Open Access Journal Publication

Join us on October 16, 2020 at 1 p.m. for a session with eLife Editor-In-Chief Michael Eisen and Nature Communications Editor-in-Chief Elisa De Ranieri, where we’ll discuss considerations for publishing with open-access journals.

By doing away with paywalls, open-access journals are endeavoring to democratize scientific learning and more quickly advance discovery. There are a growing number of these journals for scientists to consider when making decisions about research paper submission, and they each have content, protocol and a peer review process that are unique to their publishing missions. We’ll explore the ins and outs in this session with editors from two highly esteemed open-access journals.

Our guests will cover:

  • What their journals look for in research submissions
  • The nuances of writing for their publications
  • The peer review process
  • Additional opportunities, such as becoming a reviewer or contributing other forms of editorial content

There will be opportunity for Q&A.
