EASE Editorial School for Journal Editors: Module 1 Journal structure and management

Wednesday, 2 November 2022 8am-10am (UK time) and repeated again at 3pm-5pm (UK time)

Module 1 of 4  – Journal structure and management

The editorial and administrative structure of a journal is a crucial part of its success or failure since a weak editorial team will delay review and publication and this can result in poor quality publications. Editors are often appointed on the basis of their scientific knowledge and seniority, with little thought to their knowledge of editing and how a journal operates: this situation risks overburdening the administrative and other publishing staff and editors, and often results in weak and poor-quality journals.

This workshop will look at what editors are expected to do, and how to ensure that the right people are appointed and that there are systems to both support and encourage them so that they remain motivated members of the journal team.
