Abstract:Publishing papers in peer-refereedacademic journals is an important job for all academic researchers andscholars. However, most authors only prepare their manuscripts for publicationfrom their own perspectives, without considering what the journal editorsactually want. This may lead to many rejection cases. In this talk, as aneditor of various well-established journals in the field of OperationsManagement, and Systems Engineering, I will share my experience on what editorsthink and how they manage submissions nowadays. I will also propose some quicktips to authors to help enhance their success rate in academic publication.
