This webinar is for anyone wishing to publish in academic peer-reviewed journals. It will explore ways to avoid rejection (looking at the common reasons why papers are rejected), and ways to engage with reviewer comments when asked to revise and resubmit. We will also consider how to respond to rejection – which happens to everyone at some point! Associate Professor Nick Hopwood will offer some practical advice and strategies to help participants get through peer review, and hopefully influence the outcome in their favour. There will be lots of time to ask questions throughout.
