An Editor's Guide to Writing and Publishing Science

Oxford University Press

Ask a scientist—particularly at the start of their career—how journals work and you will either get a blank stare or a logical but inaccurate reply. The only people who know journal workflows are managing editors and chief editors. Chief editors seek assessments of diverse publication criteria and accept manuscripts based on recommendations and attaining certain standards. This chapter introduces the reader to what journals want, and how they apply protocols of selectivity while maintaining fairness.
