Graduate Students pursuing publication in peer reviewed journals will sooner or later be confronted with a request to “Revise and Resubmit” an article. The Revise and Resubmission process can be tricky to navigate, as authors try to preserve what they take to be the essence of the paper’s contribution while at the same time responding effectively to the concerns and criticisms of the Editor and reviewers. This workshop provides some general direction on how best to manage this delicate process. Participants will receive guidance in the following areas: (1) understanding the stages and timing of the publication process from initial submission through to production; (2) managing correspondence with journal Editor, particularly if author expectations concerning timing etc. are not met; (3) rewriting an article on the basis of reviewer criticisms, including those the author might disagree with; (4) making revisions in tandem with a co-author; (5) documenting revisions in a transparent manner for the ease of those evaluating the resubmitted manuscript; (6) conforming to a journal’s citation and presentation requirements; and (7) responding to the final decision. During the Workshop participants will examine a variety of revise and resubmission case studies. Participants will also be encouraged to share their own experiences of the publication process.
