Merci Manon :) any tips for when your reviewers disagree with one another? In the instance that the editors do not provide guidance regarding the disagreement, that is.
Beth Kearney
34:52
Great. Thanks!
Caroline D. Laurent

How to deal with requests to send back revisions very quickly?...
Lauren Cuthbert
36:30
What would you recommend in the case where you’re given a piece of feedback about cutting something out or changing something in your article, but you feel very strongly about leaving this one thing as is?
McAteer, Catherine
36:37
That was so helpful, thank you! How obliged is the author to take on board *all* suggestions - I've had some requests in the past which have seemed unreasonable (and colleagues have agreeed) and I've half-heartedly rectified according to feedback, but is it really frowned upon not to tow the line completely?
Sui HE

Related to Catherine's question, if the feedback from a reviewer is obviously unreasonable, shall we just walk away from this journal or get in touch with the editor to discuss the feedback? Some journals don't seem to care that much about who they ask to do the peer review.
McAteer, Catherine
43:19
And what about the opposite to Caroline's question - I have done my revisions on a chapter for an edited volume which should have been published last year .. covid aside, I have been waiting what i would regard as too long for a final publication dates. I have already suggested that i take my chapter elsewhere, but the editors have insisted it will go ahead.. Will I look like a prima donna if I pull the chapter now and try to find a new home for it, maybe in a journal?

Thank you, Manon, for sharing your experience. Can I ask if you always go for prestigious journals first, then going down the list if rejected, or always try to find one with a more fitting scope and a higher chance of getting accepted?
McAteer, Catherine
47:43
That's really helpful - thank you! :)
Sara Al Tubuly
50:04
It is difficult to choose the right journal for our work, any tips on this from your experience.
Mavis Ho
50:31
That's great, merci, Manon!
DOMINIQUE CARLINI-VERSINI
51:26
Many thanks for sharing your experience, Manon! How often do you think we should publish articles (or book chapters)? Is there a certain amount of articles we should have on our CV at the early career stage?
J Wang
52:52
On a related note, would it be worthwhile working on book chapters when book editors/reviewers seem to be quite demanding (which I know is a good thing but wonder would it be better to turn it to a journal article)?
DOMINIQUE CARLINI-VERSINI
54:04
Thank you very much :)!
J Wang
54:09
Because I've been told by a few experienced academics that book chapters may be a waste of time...
Ann Ang
54:14
Thanks so much for such an encouraging presentation. Are single author articles perceived as more prestigious as compared to collaboratively written ones?
Mavis Ho
54:21
@J Wang, at the University of Edinburgh, I was told articles in prestigious journals is better than book chapters
