Dealing with journal editors and reviewers when submitting articles for publication can be overwhelming, but it is a vital step in the publication process. Despite its importance, we rarely receive adequate training on how to interact with editors and reviewers, aside from observing our mentors and replicating what they did. In this presentation, you will get a checklist of “do’s and don’ts” along with examples from the presenters' own work, and learn simple yet effective strategies for transforming the experience of dealing with journal editors and reviewers from overwhelming to positive – potentially affecting the outcome of your paper. The presenters also discuss effective/ineffective strategies to (1) query editors, (2) write effective cover letters, (3) respond to reviewers’ comments, and (4) handle confusing feedback.
