Graduate students pursuing publication in peer reviewed journals will sooner or later be confronted with a request to “Revise and Resubmit” an article. The revision 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) rewriting an article on the basis of reviewer criticisms, including those the author might disagree with; (3) making revisions in tandem with a co-author; (4) documenting revisions in a transparent and tactful manner for the ease of those evaluating the resubmitted manuscript; and (5) responding to the final decision. During the workshop participants will examine a variety of revision and resubmission case studies. Participants will also be encouraged to share their own experiences of the publication process.
