This video snippet takes a sneak peek into a typical day in a journal editor's life. Dancik gives us a glimpse into the various levels of screening that a manuscript goes through, and takes us through the different stages in the editorial decision-making process. He also gives us useful tips on which parts of the submission package editors attach more importance to: how a convincing cover letter or well-presented tables and figures can make a positive impact on the editor.

This video is a part of an interview series in which Donald Samulack, President, US Operations, Editage, Cactus Communications, speaks to Bruce P. Dancik, Editor-in-Chief, NRC Research Press/Canadian Science Publishing, and Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Renewable Resources, University of Alberta, at the 54th Annual Meet of the Council of Science Editors, held in Maryland, Baltimore, from April 29 through May 3, 2011.
