How to be a Successful Journal Editor
Thursday 25 – Friday 26 March 2010, Oxford
A 1.5 day course for Editors-in-Chief, Editorial Board members and Managing Editors.
Organised by PSP Consulting in association with ALPSP and supported by the European Association of Science Editors (EASE http://www.ease.org.uk ).
Many editors may have excellent academic knowledge, but do they know how to maximise the potential of their journal – meeting the needs of authors, readers, owners/publishers and the public (industry, professions, researchers and others)? This course has been run for 13 years, during which time it has successfully trained over 250 medical editors. It has now been adapted for editors in other disciplines.
Editors are expected to not only accredit good content, but to take an active role in managing, developing and promoting their publication in both print and online. To be successful takes not only excellent academic knowledge and judgement, but also understanding of how to maximise the potential of a journal.
This course is designed to allow editors the space to meet peers and discuss successful techniques for developing their journal – meeting the needs of authors, readers, their publishers and the public (industry, professions, research, etc.).
