At the 2017 ECSS MetropolisRuhr congress, delegates had the chance to attend a publishing workshop offering expert tips and techniques to master the journal publishing process.

The workshop was chaired by ECSS Publishing Consultant Kate Nuttall with perspectives from authors, editors and publishing professionals. Guest speakers included:

Professor Andy Jones, Editor-in-Chief European Journal of Sport Science
Dr Sharief Hendricks, Social Media Editor European Journal of Sport Science
Ms Alejandra Leach-Núñez, Managing Editor, Taylor & Francis Group

The key take-home messages from this session included:

Why publish?

To exchange ideas, build your reputation as an author and disseminate your research at a global level.

Don’t publish…

  • Something of no scholarly interest.
  • Work that is out of date.
  • A duplication of existing, published research.
  • Incorrect or unacceptable research.

Pre submission tips

Tips from the Editors

  • Be novel, be original and seek feedback from colleagues.
  • Think: originality, significance, importance. Do the best science you can.
  • Use an Editor or editing service.
  • Take advantage of the review process.
  • Use the resources available.
  • Read all about the journal you are submitting to, including back copies.
  • Follow the instructions!
  • Spend plenty of time on abstract and title.
  • If you’re rejected, review your paper for the next journal you will submit to. 
  • The job is not done when it’s accepted. You need to communicate your research through social media avenues. Be creative and use infographics, videos or video abstracts.
