Have you ever wondered what editors look for when combing through droves of manuscript submissions? Just how do you get your manuscript to the top of the pile? In this session participants will learn what editors look for when deciding which articles get considered for publication. Panel members will discuss how to avoid common mistakes when writing and submitting papers for publication. They will also give hints and tips about topics like how to write a good abstract, citations, and more. In addition, speakers will discuss current publishing trends and publishing biases. A question and answer session will follow the presentations; presentations will be kept short in order to allow plenty of time for lively discussion. This session is aimed at students, post-docs, and early-career psychology researchers, but attendance is open to all.
