  • Rowe research workshop

    Dr. Jim Barker is offering a workshop on crafting the "revise and resubmit" response letter.

    Abstract: The author's response to the reviewers and editor plays a pivotal role in the assessment of a revised and resubmitted manuscript. After last year’s talk on this topic, several of you asked me to continue the session in a workshop format. In this workshop, I will cover topics that we did not have time for last year and work more with your specific response questions and situations. Drawing on my experiences as journal Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor, I will discuss a set of lessons learned for responding to reviewers and the editor when you are crafting your revision and your response letter. I will then work with your specific questions and develop suggestions for enhancing the probability of a positive manuscript decision.
