More readers + more submissions = greater article selectivity, is the equation for a leading journal. But what steps can editors take to develop their journal’s reputation and impact in order to attract a wider audience? On 4/22 at 10:30AM CT we’ll be tackling this question and more during the webinar “Inside the Editors’ Office: Growing Your Journal’s Reputation and Impact.”

We have a great discussion planned for this event and invite you to submit your own questions via Twitter! To ask a question, just tweet it to @Scholasticahq using the hashtag #ScholWebinar and we’ll be sure to respond either during or after the event.

Webinar Themes

From professionalizing your publication’s online presence, to focusing on article promotion, or developing a robust metadata and indexing plan, there are a lot of routes to take to become a more established and selective journal. During the webinar we’ll explore these different avenues and discuss how journals can prepare for submission surges, which can come as a publication becomes better known.

We’re looking forward to this webinar and hope you will take the time to watch! We’ll be making the webinar recording openly available via the Scholastica blog and YouTube. Stay tuned for the recording on-demand link!
