You’re Invited!

16th May, 2022

Academics are under increasing pressure to publish their work in prestigious journals in order to ‘disseminate their findings’ and enhance their career prospects. The editors of these journals receive more and more submissions each year from academics desperate to get their work accepted.

So how do journal editors decide which papers should be desk rejected, and which should be sent out for peer review? What advice would they give to colleagues who wish to publish in their journals in order to maximise their chances of a successful outcome?
