This month the Scientific Liaison Coalition, of which the Teratology Society is a member, presents two webinars on peer-reviewed publishing. These webinars are open to members of SLC member societies, which includes all members of the Teratology Society.
How to Get Published in Peer-Reviewed Journals (Link to Recorded Webinar)
Presented by Mary Beth Genter, PhD, DABT, ATS, Professor, Department of Environment Health, University of Cincinnati and current Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Toxicology, the official journal of the American College of Toxicology. The webinar provides advice, examples, and guidance on writing and publishing effective scientific manuscripts. Recording Available Here.
The Future of Publishing (Takes place live on Tuesday, February 27, 11:00 AM–12:30 PM ET USA)
Presented by Gary W. Miller, PhD, Professor of Environmental Health and Associate Dean of Research in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. Dr. Miller, Editor-in-Chief of Toxicological Sciences, will provide his views on some of the trends and explain what the Journal is doing to keep abreast of these challenges. Over the past decade there have been several major changes in the scientific publication landscape. Increasing access to scientific findings, through a combination of open access and making primary data more readily available, have been major drivers of these changes. Investigators are sharing more of their data through websites and data repositories. The use of preprints to share findings in advance of publication also is increasing in the biomedical sciences. There has also been rapid growth in the number of journals with a less than stellar reputation. Such predatory journals pose a threat to the research community.

Recordings of all SLC webinars are posted in the Educational Webinars File Library on BDR Connection for member access at a later date.
