Understanding the Manuscript Review Process: Increasing the Participation of Women.
Russo, Nancy Felipe; And Others
For the process leading to the publication of one's professional work to be equitable, all authors must understand why and how publication decisions are made. Psychologists must understand how editors and reviewers look at manuscripts, and how the author's own attitudes and skills may affect the acceptance of manuscripts. These four papers are based on presentations at the American Psychological Association symposium, "Understanding the Manuscript Review Process: Increasing the Participation of Women." The papers are intended to inform all psychologists, no matter in which area they may wish to publish. "An Editor Looks for the Perfect Manuscript," by Sandra Scarr, is presented from the perspective of a journal editor. "Overcoming Common Barriers to Publishing Psychological Work," by Stephanie B. Stolz, is an author's view. "Manuscript Faults and Review Board Recommendations: Lethal and Non-Lethal Errors," by Kathryn M. Bartol, is based on a survey of review board members. "Another Voice on the Publishing of Manuscripts," by Jacqueline Goodchilds, looks at the publishing system. (CM)
