Thank you for joining us at the Wiley Editor Symposium in Hoboken on March 28th and 29th.
As a journal Editor you play a critical role in the research community. With each decision you make, you are influencing the direction of research and impacting researchers’ careers. While journals thrive on the contributions of individual papers, scientific debate and discovery is happening across an expansive ecosystem of journals, repositories, and social media — sometimes pre-dating publication. The size of the academic world has grown and pressure to publish has increased, while expectations for rapid publication, recognition, openness, and transparency are higher than ever before. These demands create challenges and opportunities for journals, editors, and publishers alike. We are committed to working together to create solutions, break down barriers and misconceptions, and raise standards of research publishing while preserving the enduring values on which our journals were built.
Please find below all the recorded presentations, the slides and the posters from the event.

Board members are advocates of the journal within the community—they are an essential resource for editors and are typically among a journal’s most prolific reviewers and important authors. An effective Editorial Board can help a journal deliver a service to its authors and readers that distinguishes it from its competitors. Using case studies and an open discussion format, editors will have an opportunity to hear best practices for curating and engaging a board that ensures the global research community is represented and has a voice in the journal’s growth and development.
With expanded choice in publishing venue, capturing the attention and loyalty of the next generation of field leaders is essential to a journal’s long-term success and sustainability. Following on from the Early Career Researcher (ECR) roundtable discussion, this workshop offers editors a closer look at how to engage this key demographic of readers, authors, and future peer reviewers.
This workshop will use case studies and subject-wide data to demonstrate how optimized workflows and new “smart” tools help editors deliver best-in-class service to their authors. Beyond operational excellence, editors will have the opportunity to discuss how expanding the reviewer pool to make better use of the global research community can deliver efficiency in peer review, and how offering referrals can deliver a high level of author satisfaction regardless of outcome.
Research fields evolve, and a journal must keep pace with these changes over time to continue to offer their authors the best venue for their work and to be a critical resource for readers. This workshop offers editors a practical look at the art of scope development through commissioning, with a special focus on Special Issues as a driver of growth in emerging and hot areas of research.

The scholarly publishing landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade, and while the future holds some amount of uncertainty it also offers a great deal of exciting opportunities. In this panel discussion, Wiley colleagues and Guest Speakers were fielding questions from the audience and explored what that future might look like and how we might get there together.
