Content: Scientific output from researchers in all disciplines and all around the world constitutes a huge amount of knowledge that needs to be organized, made accessible, and checked for technical correctness. Editors in scientific journals are behind this process, and constantly discuss how to improve it.
In this workshop we will discuss many stages through which research progresses from an initial idea to publication and dissemination, including effective planning strategies for impactful research, manuscript writing, editorial evaluation, peer review, publication, and utilization. We will also discuss some recent initiatives to improve transparency, reproducibility, data availability, and the peer review process. The workshop will be a combination of talks from editors and questions and discussion from the audience.
