Dr. Gwen Taylor, Business Development Manager – Wiley Researcher Academy, Wiley Publishers
This lecture will review the most common reasons why research manuscripts are rejected, and how proper training can save a lot of time and headaches in publishing endeavors. Best practices will be discussed, which can be applied to future research writing and publishing.
Dr. Taylor earned her doctorate in biochemistry from the University of Colorado in Boulder and did postdoctoral work in the pharmacology department at Yale University School of Medicine. She then joined Wiley Publishers as an Editor for the Current Protocols series of life science laboratory methods. After 20 years as an Editor, Dr. Taylor helped develop the Wiley Researcher Academy (WRA), an e-learning course that teaches researchers the pitfalls and best practices for publishing their findings. Since late 2017 she has become the emissary for the WRA in North America and loves to talk about how proper training can save a lot of time and headaches in publishing endeavors.
