SPECIAL EVENT: Round Table with Editor Dr. Craig Mak – Manuscript Evaluation

Have you ever wondered how your manuscripts are reviewed and evaluated by the Board of Editors upon submission to a journal? How they decide whether a manuscript will be sent or not for peer review?

Here’s your chance to find out! Join Dr. Craig Mak from Nature Biotechnology for a round table in-depth discussion of the editorial criteria they use to evaluate manuscripts; and a discussion of the challenges of effectively communicating the main messages of a study to readers who are pressed for time and not necessarily experts in the subject matter of the paper. A total of three manuscripts will be discussed; participants will be given a limited amount of time (one hour) to go through the manuscripts prior to the round table.

When: Monday, August 12

This event will be limited to 15 people.

How to apply to participate: We invite you to submit a manuscript by August 6 that is in preparation for submission or recently submitted to a journal at this e-mail addressaflorent@broadinstitute.org. Dr. Craig Mak will select the three manuscripts that will be discussed during this event. All manuscripts will be kept confidential. If you’d like to participate, please complete this form. Participants will be randomly selected and notified via email.
