Responsibilities of journal editors towards authors
A recent survey has shown that there is a gap in understanding between authors and journal editors. Authors don’t always have all the information they need about aspects such as editors’ requirements, submission guidelines, authorship criteria, journal processes, ethical guidelines, etc. This results in a lot of confusion and poor submission quality. As the single point of contact for authors, it is up to journal editors to bridge this gap. These slides show how journal editors can provide authors with accurate and up-to-date information about all aspects of publication and how they can communicate clearly and effectively with authors.
