Editorial support FAQ

1.  Who is eligible for editorial support?

Full-time CON faculty are eligible for editorial support when they are:

  • primary author on the manuscript; usually, this is the person who:
    • has written the majority of content
    • is primarily responsible for compiling, reviewing/editing and approving the final draft of the article
    • will receive credit as first/primary author
    • will act as corresponding author
  • principal investigator on the grant

In other situations, which are decided on a case-by-case basis by the Associate Dean for Research, editorial support may not be available or it may be offered in a more limited capacity.

Please note that CON editorial support is not available for papers written by students.

2.  How do I request editorial support?

CON faculty may request editorial support by completing the Research Support Form above and attaching the appropriate documents, which should be in final or near-final form. The form is sent to the editor, who should respond to the request via e-mail within one working day.

3.  What is your definition of a final document?

A “final document” is a document that has received appropriate contributions by all authors, and is almost ready for submission.

4.  How are requests for editorial support prioritized?

Editorial support requests are typically managed on a first-in, first-out basis.  Grant-related documents may be given priority over manuscripts if there is an approaching grant deadline.

5.  How long will it take for the editor to review my document?

Please note that, with few exceptions, documents will be returned within ten business days.

6.  I will have a document ready in a month, and I would like to ensure that editorial support is available for me. How do I schedule an appointment to ensure that I receive editorial support?

Unfortunately, at this time, editorial support cannot be reserved with an appointment.  Editorial support requests are managed on a first-in, first-out basis.  Thus, please provide the editor with at least ten business days to ensure review of your document.

7.  I have questions or concerns about editorial support.  Whom do I contact?

For general questions about editorial support or concerns related to editorial procedures, please contact Amanda Goldsmith.
