Meet the Editors: Publishing Insights, Tips and Contacts from Cell Press, JCI, EMBO and more!


Keystone Symposia meetings provide a unique forum for scientific journal editors to interact with field leaders and up-and-coming scientists about the latest research trends and advances in any given field.  It is here, in these fertile research grounds, that they often discover the stories to showcase in upcoming issues of their journals, and novel ideas to pursue.

In our “Meet the Editors” blog series we highlight editors from leading publications including Cell Press Journals, EMBO, the Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI), and more, who frequently attend Keystone Symposia meetings on the hunt for emerging topics and research frontiers.

In these Q/As, they provide invaluable insights into the world of publishing, and tips for contacting them about your research!

Here we compile these Scientific Journal Editors’ insights, tips, and contact information into one invaluable resource for the scientific community.

For Editors, Keystone Symposia meetings provide:

      • a unique window into yet unpublished research, innovations and field directions, as they peruse posters, short-talks, workshops, and plenary sessions
      • ideal opportunities to establish relationships with scientists for future publication prospects

For Scientists, Editors’ frequent attendance at Keystone Symposia meetings offer valuable opportunities to:

      • ask Editors face-to-face questions about publishing
      • network with Editors and make contacts that can facilitate the publication process for both parties
