This 'Thursday' seminar is presented by Dr Jane Rees, Interim Head of Research Policy, who spent over 10 years working as a Senior Editor at Nature before moving to Liverpool.
Jane will provide an insider’s view of how journals like Nature work, and suggest the best strategies for communicating with your editor to maximise the chance of success. She will cover how to choose the right journal for your work, why open access publishing is becoming increasingly important, and when it is worth appealing an editorial decision. She will also touch on elements of style to make your scientific writing more accessible to non-specialists.
I am happy to send out a slide-set to attendees if you can provide me with your email address.
