The journal publishing cycle
About this module
The first time you publish a paper, it can feel like a journey into the unknown. In this interactive module, we guide you through the basics. We explain the journal publishing cycle and the purpose of some of the key roles.
You will learn how publishers work closely with editors and editorial boards on a whole range of tasks, including managing existing journals and launching new ones. Moreover, you will hear how publishers facilitate peer review, a process more than 90% of authors agree improves their paper. We also touch on topics like article archiving and promotion. You’ll come away with a solid understanding of each step in the publishing journey from how submissions are solicited and managed through to final publication and dissemination.
