"Ask an Editor" workshop with Prof Steve Lindsay (UVic)
Contact Kim Wade for more details:
Ask an Editor about Publishing in and Reviewing for Psychology Journals
I’ve edited two major psychology journals (Journal of Experimental Psychology: General 2002-2007 and Psychological Science 2015-2019) and have a fair amount of experience as an author and reviewer. I’ll present a brief overview the manuscript submission and evaluation process used by most peer-reviewed (refereed) journals in psychology. I’ll also offer tips on how to decide where to submit a manuscript, ways to enhance its reception, and how to respond to editors’ action letters. Then I’ll shift gears and talk about how to be a good reviewer. There will be ample time for discussion.
