This online session is an opportunity for all interested researchers in Japan to meet and talk with the editors-in-chief of two prestigious journals in the field of public administration and learn how to increase their chances of publishing in the field.

Preparing a paper for submission to a peer-reviewed journal can be a daunting task, and the peer-review process may seem to involve many uncertainties. Our editors will give advice on how to prepare a manuscript to increase the likelihood of publication and how to respond effectively to reviewers’ comments, among other important tips. The attendees are invited to ask the editors any questions they might have about journal publication or the publication process.

The session will be designed for researchers in Japan, at any career level, from Ph.D. students to senior researchers. It will be most useful for those working in the field of public administration and related fields. Registration is required.
