Episode 4 – Submitting Your Manuscript Using the ACS Paragon Plus Environment

About the Episode

In the fourth episode in our publishing series, we focus on the manuscript submission process itself, providing a guide to navigating ACS’s Paragon Plus peer review environment. While the demonstration and discussion are based on the ACS submission system, many of the comments address issues that are applicable to publishers in general. What does the submission system look like? What are some of the critical steps in the process? What can you do to make sure your manuscript makes it through the peer review process as quickly as possible? What if you make a mistake during your submission? Listen in and hear from our own experts some tips for navigating the system.
