Speaker: Ms. SIlvana Lakeman
Publications are the currency of the research enterprise, however what happens after you click submit to a journal is often a black box. The goal of this session is to illuminate what happens behind the scenes in publishing. As an editor who primarily handles research articles, Silvana Lakeman will provide an overview of the process. The session will cover journal selection and the differences between various Nature outlets, and the editorial process – from initial submission to final publication. This includes how to overcome common hurdles in ensuring your paper is catching the attention of editors and reviewers for the right reasons, and examples of successful papers. Any and all questions on this topic, as well as on the Editorial career track, are welcome.
Silvana has worked as an Editor at Nature Communications (a journal in the Nature family) since March 2021. She is a social scientist by training, with an MA in International Relations from Leiden University, and a PhD in Political Science from the University of Bremen. In her own research, she has focused on environmental governance at the international organizational level, climate change mitigation policy, and disaster risk reduction, response and adaptation. At Nature Communications, she handles all manuscripts related to environmental social sciences, and is based in the journal’s Berlin office.
