In this session, the editors describe the aims of their respective journals and editorial decision-making processes and will discuss several issues, including how to match topics to specific journals, review processes, features of articles theyâ€™ve accepted for publication, how to respond to reviewer comments, and how to address the implications of their research for practice and policy. Most important, they will create a discussion with participants about what constitutes a publishable qualitative article that influences practice and policy.
Much of the session is a dialogue between participants and panel members. Participants will write questions on index cards, and the chair will read the questions to the editors. This part of the session moves into a general discussion of topics of interest. The editors contribute to the scholarly development of the participants by building skills related to successful publications.
