Science magazine editor visits Northwestern
Science magazine's senior editor Phillip Szuromi visited the Evanston campus and presented an overview of how the journal publishes papers. The Science editors not only direct the peer-review process but also stay informed about their fields and identify emerging fields. He commented on the changing scientific publishing landscape and recapped some recent initiatives to uphold high standards of author and referee conduct.
As part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a nonprofit organization, the goal of Science magazine is to ensure that research published in the journal has benefit to society. The journal also tries to advance a general appreciation for the value of thinking scientifically about the many challenges our world now faces.
