January CCTS Forum - Mastering Peer Review: Insights from the Editors

This is a past event.

If one of your 2019 resolutions is to see your research make it into publication, do not miss this special CCTS Forum. Joined by a multidisciplinary panel of Editors-in-Chief, we will explore best practices and what aspiring authors need to consider as they prepare articles for peer review. With rejection rates as high as 90% among certain high-impact journals and major changes on the horizon to address data sharing and reproducibility, even well-established science writers will benefit from this discussion.
