Enago conducted an informative webinar in collaboration with Hindawi—one of the world’s largest publishers of open access and peer-reviewed journals for science, technology, and medicine—to help rationalize the recent shifts in the scholarly publishing sphere due to the coronavirus outbreak. It focussed on discussing the consequent challenges faced by researchers and publishers, and the cope mechanisms adopted to ensure maximum research productivity. Dr. Richard de Grijs (Publication and Training Consultant, Enago Academy) advised researchers how to make the most out of remote working conditions and keep up with productivity.
Further in response to the current pandemic, a group of publishers and scholarly communication organizations came together to ensure research related to COVID-19 is reviewed and published as quickly as possible. Sarah Theissen (Publisher at Hindawi) has been working on internal as well as cross-publisher workflows to facilitate this. In this session, she shared information about how the COVID-19 Rapid Review cross-publisher initiative is making it easier for researchers to submit their manuscripts during the pandemic, as well as making their research available online as soon as possible.
Through this session, researchers will gain insights into:
- Overview of the current scholarly publishing scenario
- Tips for researchers to sustain their research
- Maintaining ethical standards in pandemic studies
- Cross-Publisher COVID-19 Rapid Review Initiative
