Publishing in an Academic Journal: Answers from the Editor

R. Kirkpatrick

Macmillan Education Japan (Springer)

As editor of Language Testing in Asia, the presenter explains the ins and outs of submitting a manuscript to an international journal. It will be of interest to those academics ready to begin their first submission or who have extensive publications. It discusses what the editors look for, what reviewers expect, and also what to do if major revisions are requested. The presentation also contrasts the gold open access model as used by SpringerOpen with so called ‘predatory journals.’ It explains the blind review process and finally looks at the extensive formatting and checking that each final manuscript undergoes pre-publication.
