AMS Publications Workshop: The Inside Scoop on Peer Review and How Publishing a Research Article is Changing
Tuesday, 6 January, 12:15–1:15 P.M.; 226B
Peer review is fundamental to the dissemination of legitimate research and the advancement of science. All authors in the AMS community know they need to clear this hurdle on the way to publishing the results of their work, but the process may seem like a black box at times. In the first part of this session, a Chief Editor of an AMS journal will discuss the peer-review process, what Editors are looking for when vetting submitted manuscripts, and how authors can best navigate the process and maximize their potential for success. In addition, AMS Director of Publications Ken Heideman and Journals Production Manager Mike Friedman will give an overview of how the AMS journals publication enterprise is evolving. Changes to be implemented in the near future (such as a fully article-based production process and “publish ahead of print”) that will further expedite publication will be covered. There will also be time for general questions about the AMS journals program. For current or prospective AMS authors, this is a session not to be missed! A limited number of boxed lunches will be provided.
