Editor Essentials has been designed both to give new editors a thorough grounding in the role and responsibilities of managing a journal, as well as providing an opportunity to more experienced editors to refresh their memory on particular issues.
Developed and delivered by publishing professionals and with input from leading editors, Editor Essentials covers a comprehensive range of topics spanning the breadth of editorial work – from receiving a submission to making a final decision, dealing with ethics cases, and managing and developing a journal and editorial team.
Each module is self-contained and most contain interactive Q&A sections describing real-life scenarios. There is also a range of resources and “further reading” on each module to facilitate more in-depth follow up.
