A research seminar is being organized on the topic Journal Desk Rejection: Common Reasons at MDI Campus on 09 Dec 2022 I 4:00 PM onwards.

The desk rejection of submitted articles can be a hugely frustrating and demotivating process from the perspective of the researcher, but equally, a time-consuming and vital step in the process for the Editor, tasked with selecting appropriate articles that meet the required criteria for further review and scrutiny.

The talk is based on the feedback from eight journal Editors that has been published recently as an editorial and aims to offer an insight to researchers on how to align their submissions to the specific journal requirements and required quality criteria, whilst demonstrating relevance and contribution to theory and practice.
