For Editors: Clarifying Your Author Guidelines

Clarifying Your Author Guidelines - December 5, 2014 ISMTE Presentation. Follow American Journal Experts on SlideShare

This presentation, in PDF form here, is a resource for journal editors on making their journal guidelines clear and concise for researchers to follow. It contains best practices, examples, format, explanations of needs and goals within editing, formatting, figures, and overall specifications. It is intended for editor audiences, but is also useful for authors and helps to clarify both why and how journal guidelines are devised the way they are and what you can do to best interpret them.

The presentation was given by Research Square (the parent company of AJE) to the local Research Triangle Park, NC, chapter of the International Society of Managing & Technical Editors (ISMTE) when we hosted them at our office on December 5, 2014.
