APS publishes the top-rated research journals in plant pathology worldwide. Having served as Editors-in-Chief of Plant Disease, Drs. Robertson and Gleason have substantial experience in evaluating manuscripts. This webinar provides advice on how to make manuscript submission as smooth and frustration-free as possible for authors. The presenters offer advice on the nuts and bolts of manuscript preparation, how to select a journal for your manuscript, how to avoid common pitfalls that can doom manuscripts, and how to manage communications with the editors and among co-authors. Special emphasis is placed on authors who are writing English as a second (or third or fourth) language, but the webinar contains useful advice for all authors seeking to learn more about tilting the odds of manuscript evaluation in your favor.
