Dr. Clark Holdsworth

Senior Manager, Communications & Partnerships (LetPub)

Dr. Holdsworth oversees communications projects and partnerships at LetPub. LetPub has thousands of interactions with authors and journals annually. Dr. Holdsworth and the Learning Nexus Team filter these experiences into an intuitive and effective educational experience for authors and journal editors.

Effective communication with journal editors from the pre-submission phase through article publication is an important skillset every academic should learn. When should you contact the editor if your manuscript is ‘stuck’ in a journal’s online system? What is the etiquette for appealing an editorial decision? How long should you wait to receive peer reviews?

If you have these or similar questions, tune in to LetPub’s upcoming webinar to learn the dos and don’ts of querying editors about your submissions. Join your webinar host, Dr. Clark Holdsworth to discuss when and how to appropriately correspond with journal editors, so that you have a successful and efficient publication experience.

Webinar highlights include:
• Review of appropriate (and inappropriate) times to query journal editors
• Expert tips for professional email correspondence
• Strategies for addressing unfair reviews or appealing editorial decisions
• Q&A to discuss your specific scenario: come prepared with questions!

A certificate of completion will be provided after the session.

Join this webinar at 11 AM ET Thursday, November 30.
