Why research manuscripts are rejected and best practices to get to “accepted”

Rejection of your manuscript can cost you time, opportunity and frustration. Dr. Gwen Taylor has been an editor at Wiley for over 20 years and will describe the most common reasons why research manuscripts are rejected as well as some best practices on how to write your manuscript to achieve the fastest route to “accepted” and “published.”

 Speaker: Gwen Taylor, PhD, Business Development Manager—Wiley Researcher Academy, Wiley Publishers

 

Publishing Your Research with IEEE (IEEE)

Learn how you can work with IEEE to communicate your research to others. IEEE’s Author Engagement and Support Manager, Tiffany McKerahan, will share insight into how peer review works, help you understand which IEEE author tools and services can support your writing efforts, and share valuable tips to help you write your article.

Speaker: Tiffany McKerahan, Author Engagement and Support Manager, IEEE Publications

Leveraging Course Material Affordability Options and Library-Subscribed Materials for Classroom Success 

On average 60% of students try to delay or avoid purchasing course materials due to underusage and material costs.  Often faculty and administrators try their best to drive student success and affordability through numerous tools and resources available here at NSU.  Through the latest trends and opportunities in course materials, and a partnership with the NSU Bookstore and NSU Libraries, ways to drive down cost in materials is a real opportunity. This presentation will discuss the partnership with the NSU Bookstore and NSU libraries to help drive student success, explore opportunities that faculty have to create Open Electronic Resources (OER) and/or acquire OER and library subscribed materials for their classrooms, and how NSU can host OER content within the institutional repository, NSUWorks.

Speakers: Keri Baker, Librarian II, Oceanographic Campus Library, Nova Southeastern University; Andy Shaffer, Regional Manager, Barnes & Noble College; Steaven Nieratka, NSU Bookstore Manager

 

Hard Work Preys Off: Recognizing & Avoiding Predatory Publishing

Learn how to spot the signs of predatory publishing and strategies for securing your scholarship.

Speakers: Janine Morris, PhD and  Eric Mason, PhD,  & Mario D’Agostino, PhD, Department of Writing & Communication, College of Arts, Humanities & Social Science, Nova Southeastern University

 

Making Sense out of Journal Rankings

Participants will leave this seminar with a stronger understanding of journal rankings, including Impact Factors, CiteScore, and Altmetrics. Myths about these rankings will be de-bunked, and participants will be able to interpret a journal’s rankings within its category and against similar journals. The end result is that researchers will have be able to make better decisions on which journals to submit their articles to.

Speaker: Jessi Schatz

 

When, Why, And How-To Peer Review Like A Pro

Peer review is vital to the research ecosystem. You won’t be surprised to learn that peer reviewers are hard to find! And the growing number of research publications only exacerbates the reviewer shortage. The average manuscript is turned down twice before a reviewer agrees to evaluate it. These factors all equate to slower publication and innovation cycle times­­- something that affects us all. How do we solve this problem? For answers we’ll look to current peer reviewers and industry experts. Along the way we’ll learn about the advantages of being a peer reviewer,  how reviewers got their start and what they learned along the way. We’ll also identify tools and practices that make tracking and publicizing your peer review efforts easy. This session will include a panel of veteran peer-reviewers and a Publons peer-review profile expert.

Speaker: Nicholas Mitchell, PhD., Solutions Specialist, Clarivate Analytics
