What Editors Expect
James L. Morrison


Publication in professional journals is critical to a successful academic career. Getting published, however, requires more than simply knowing your field or writing up a study. Understanding the process of publication from the editor's point of view, and making sure that your article meets the editor's basic expectations, enhances your chances of getting "Accept" or "Revise and Resubmit" letters, rather than a rejection note. What are editors' expectations? How do you avoid the pitfalls that bedevil inexperienced authors and sabotage their chances of receiving the coveted acceptance letter? James Morrison, Editor-in-Chief of Innovate, has served as founding editor of On the Horizon and The Technology Source, has been an editorial board member of seven other journals, and has published over 200 articles, 20 book chapters, and eight books. This is all by the way of saying that he can show you the ropes for successful publication. The audio version of the presentation is also available.
