Asia’s leading academic editing partner
After spending months writing a research paper, it is natural to want to send it off as soon as possible. However, the last thing you want is for it to be immediately rejected by the journal editor, so it’s worth spending an extra couple of hours making sure you’ve done everything you can to ensure your paper reaches the actual review stage. In this webinar, we’ll discuss issues such as how to write a good cover letter, what to look out for in journal instructions for authors, and simple but important checks you can perform on the paper to ensure it’s ready for review.
Date and time: Wednesday 26th May 2021, 7:00p.m. Hong Kong/Beijing time.
Duration and structure: 45 minutes. The webinar will follow an interactive Q & A format, with AsiaEdit COO, Mr Nick Case, acting as moderator and asking Dr Baron questions pre-submitted by the audience. The final 10 minutes will be set aside for live Q & A.
Who should attend: Early to mid-career academics and post-graduate students from the social sciences
Speaker: Dr Rachel Baron, Co-Chief Editor & Managing Editor (Social Science), AsiaEdit
