Responding effectively to reviewer comments is important for getting past the revise and resubmit stage and seeing your paper published. In this workshop, we will look at some of the common challenges faced when responding to reviewer comments, and do a hands-on writing exercise to learn about effective strategies for responding. This workshop will be particularly valuable for graduate students and early career researchers submitting papers for publication for the first time.
• Synthesize criticism of a manuscript you’ve submitted
• Tactfully express actionable responses to this criticism that will improve your manuscript
Materials for students to bring:
It’s not necessary for you to bring any writing with you, as sample reviews will be distributed for the purpose of the reading and writing activities at the workshop. However, if you are currently in the process of writing a response to reviewers, or have some reviewer comments you are currently working with, you are welcome to bring them if you have questions or wish to use it in the writing exercise.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Yevgen Nazarenko, McGill postdoc, who has authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications and delivered numerous talks in the areas of chemistry, environmental sciences and nanotechnology safety.
The workshop will be held on McGill's downtown campus on Tuesday, February 20, 1pm-3pm. Registrants will receive the workshop location in a confirmation email.
