  2. 2.  Founded in 1798  First journal was Philosophical Magazine  Publish over 2,200 journals across all subject areas  One of the world’s biggest scholarly publishers  Continually innovating, launching new products and services  At the centre of everything we do is dissemination of research and overall excellence of service to our authors
  3. 3. 1. Idea 2. Choose Journal 3. Read back issues 4. Write first draft 5. Use critical friend 6. Refine further drafts 7. Check notes for authors on journal website 8. Proof- read and submit
  4. 4. Tip 1: A journal article is not a magazine article, a book manuscript or your PhD thesis (but you could write a Book Review…)! Q. Do you:  a) Write an article for a specific journal?  b) Find any journal for your article A. Be in the minority:  30% of authors write for a specific journal, 70% write the article and panic.
  5. 5. Tip 2: You are joining a conversation with other authors Research the journals in your field:  Visit your university library  Look at publishers and journal websites  Talk to your colleagues  Pick your type: Generalist, or niche?  Read the Aims and Scope  Check http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/  Ask the right questions and know the right answers: • Editor? • Editorial Board? • Publisher? • Authors? • Readership? • Online/Print? • Impact Factor? • Peer Review? • Submission process? • Open Access policy?
  6. 6. Citation metrics (rightly or wrongly) are widely used as measures of quality by:  Librarians  Tenure & promotion committees  Grant awarding bodies  Authors  Publishers In the simplest terms, they calculate the average number of citations over a specified time period.  Impact Factor/Sciences Citation Index  SNIP/ Scopus  Eigenfactor Score®  Article Influence Score®
  7. 7.  These are often perceived as just a social media tool  More powerful than this – ◦ Look at broader measures that can relate back to research output  Useful as a filter: ◦ More than 1.7 million articles in Scopus from 2012 ◦ Impossible to read everything! ◦ Provide a post-publication filter ◦ Helps us know what we need to read ◦ Speed – very current  Various services available
  8. 8. Tip 3: Think like an Editor “...I think authors need to be a little bit empathetic, they need to think ‘what is it like to be an editor of a journal? How many papers is the Editor receiving per day, per week? What is going to actually make the journal pay attention to my paper?” Monica Taylor, Former Editor of Journal of Moral Education
  9. 9. Definitely Do the following:  Look at accepted papers  Quote from articles in the journal  Fit the Aims & Scope  Format your article to the journal’s standard style  Know where or who to submit to  Check spelling and grammar  Consider English ‘Polishing’  Ask a colleague to read it
  10. 10. Definitely Do NOT: × Overlook the title × Rush the abstract × Ignore the submission guidelines × Ignore the bibliography × Leave acronyms unexplained × Forget to clear any Copyright × Miss out attachments (figures, tables, photos) × Send the incorrect version of your paper
  11. 11. Tip 4: The title and abstract are the most visible parts of your article. "We would typically expect a strong title, a good title that really expressed what the article was about and made it clear to the reader exactly what the topic was, and it's amazing how often writers neglect to do that.” Professor Mark Brundrett, Editor of Education 3-13
  12. 12. “A good abstract will tell you what the key issue that’s addressed is, it’ll give you an idea of the methods that have been used and the conclusions that have been arrived at. So that abstract ought to tell someone whether it’s worth them spending part of their life reading this paper. If the abstract doesn’t do that the chances are the paper will have further weaknesses.” Professor David Gillborn, Editor, Race, Ethnicity and Education
  13. 13.  New website providing support to “polish” author manuscripts and help prepare them for publication  http://www.tandfeditingservices.com/en/  English Language Editing  Manuscript Formatting  Figure Preparation
  14. 14. Plagiarism: is it on the increase or are we just better at detecting it? It doesn’t matter, just don’t do it!  Be wary of self-plagiarism  Don’t submit a manuscript to more than one journal at a time  Don’t send an incomplete paper just to get feedback  Always acknowledge your co-authors and/or fellow researchers  Always mention any source of funding for your paper.
  15. 15. 1. Editor receives manuscript 2. Reviewers 3. Accept Minor amendments Major amendments Reject 4. Feedback to author 5. Amend 6. Publisher proof stage 7. Article Published!
  16. 16. Single-blind review Also known as masked review, where the reviewer's name is hidden from the author. Double-blind review Also known as double-masked review, where the reviewer's name is hidden from the author and the author's name is hidden from the reviewer. Open review Where no identities are concealed. Post-publication review Where comments can be made by readers and reviewers after the article has been published.
  17. 17.  Desk Reject  Reject and Resubmit  Revise and resubmit ◦ with major revisions ◦ with minor revisions  Accept
  18. 18.  The process should not take too long  You should be kept informed of the progress of your paper.  Feedback that you receive from referees should always be constructive, justified and polite.  The process should be transparent.  Referees should not keep copies of your paper or use any part of it without prior permission.  There should be a policy in place to deal with conflicts of interest.  Confidentiality and impartiality should be guaranteed.  The reviewing process should be open to audit.
  19. 19. 1 Out of scope 2 Not a true academic article 3 Too long/too short 4 Disregard for writing conventions 5 Poor style, grammar, punctuation or English 6 No contribution to the subject 7 Not contextualised/parochial interest 8 Poor theoretical framework/lacks references 9 Poorly presented or proofread 10 Libellous, unethical, rude
  20. 20.  Do nothing for a few days: calm down!  It’s not usually worth getting into a discussion with the Editor about the reviewers, it won’t alter the decision and could do you harm.  Use the reviewers’ comments, alter the paper and submit to another journal.  If you do submit elsewhere, take care to alter your paper to the new style of that journal. Editors can easily detect a paper that was submitted to a rival publication.  If asked to make heavy amendments and resubmit, you must decide if it is worthwhile. Remember, you may get rejected again! It may be better to go elsewhere.
  21. 21.  Reading Lists  Departmental website or personal webpage  Social and Academic Networking: ◦ e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Linked-In, MyNetResearch, Academici, CiteULike  Discussion Lists  Blogs  Library Recommendation  Free Sample Copy  Email signature  Send e-prints to your colleagues
  22. 22. Much confusion!  Lots of terms are used to define Open Access, often contradictory!  Two main types - Gold and Green, but what do they mean? In essence, Open Access means:  making content freely available online to read  making content reusable by third parties with little or no restrictions Gold Open Access  publication of the final article (“Version of Record”)  article is made freely available online (typically after payment of an Article Publishing Charge (APC)). Green Open Access  *Usually* refers to archiving or deposit of an earlier version of your article in a repository
