Past Events

The purpose of Wiley Editor Symposia are to give editors and publishers a chance to meet, share insights into the publishing process and explore how we are raising standards to transform and adapt against the backdrop of global challenges in science and society.

We have a lot to learn from one another, and the Editor Symposium is a journey of discovery featuring speakers and breakouts that will encourage us to think differently about how we work on journals.

Feedback from attendees:

  • Networking with both other editor-in-chiefs and early career researcher was fantastic!

  • There was a good mix of topical, relevant information provided as well as opportunities to discuss and interact with other editors.”

  • “Listening to the keynote talks […] I have several ideas for changes for the journal including an Editorial that I am working on right now.

  • I am fairly new at being an editor and I went into this knowing almost nothing. My goal was to learn more about how to be an editor and how to do it well. I got so many great ideas and feedback that it was a huge success!! Topics were pertinent to editors work and responsibilities. Excellent opportunities for networking, accessing experts in publishing, and opportunities to gain insights on publishing developments, trends and anticipated innovative ideas.”

  • “Wiley has strong visions, strategies, and cultures. Every editor should attend the symposium. Period.

  • “The Wiley Editors Symposium offered important information on trends in academic publishing, strategies for addressing key challenges editors face, and opportunities for hands-on instruction in new technologies. The speakers were excellent, and the conference organization was outstanding. The program features several different session formats, keeping the audience focused and engaged. It was a pleasure to meet and share experiences with other journal editors. I left the conference feeling inspired excited to share new ideas and with my editorial board.
