What Editors Want:
Do's and Don'ts for submitting your manuscript

   
Monday, August 8, 6:30-10:00pm
Meeting Room 510a, Level 5, Palais des congrès de Montréal
   
Have you ever wondered what editors look for when combing through the barrage of manuscript submissions? Just how do you get your manuscript to the top of the pile? In this workshop participants will learn what editors look for when deciding which articles get considered for publication, learn how to avoid common mistakes, how to prepare illustrations, and some hints and tips about things like copyright permissions, citations, and more. In addition, this workshop will cover the article types and requirements for the different ESA journals, and the details about how to use the online submission system. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
This workshop is aimed at students, post-docs, and early-career ecologists, but attendance is open to all.

     

The session will begin with several short presentations by ESA editors and production staff, followed by a panel discussion that will constitute the majority of the session.
