For most authors, manuscript submission is a time-consuming task that involves listing many co-authors with various affiliations and other metadata. This frustrates many authors and often leads to flawed data, impacting the process downstream. For example, if authors aren’t listed with the correct affiliation, open access agreements can’t be picked up, and authors might get charged APCs when an agreement should cover their fees.
No worries. Here's the full summary of the Submission and Open Access webinar.
“It’s so important to capture the right information early on in the process, right at submission, otherwise we see things go wrong later on.”
Christian Grubak, Founder and Co-CEO @ChronosHub
First of all, providing as much information as possible pre-submission. In our January webinar, we talked about how to make open access agreements more transparent for authors and our researcher webinar on “What do Open access agreements entail?” also talked about this, and included some great tools.
Publisher journal finders are also a great way to find a ton of information pre-submission. Check out the IOPP or ACS journal finders here.
At ChronosHub, we have partnered with a number of peer review systems to provide seamless integrations - so the two systems can talk to each other, even during the submission process.
