A different form of editor–author interaction: the approach of university journals in China
Abstract:University journals in China exist primarily to showcase the academic research achievements of the university from which they originate. Although they do publish peer-reviewed articles, their management, distribution, and editorial processes are different from those of regular academic journals. Because they are on campus, the editors of university journals can use face-to-face communication to help their authors to revise their papers. To maximize the efficiency of this communication, editors need to prepare well before giving such guidance in order to minimize publication delay, to provide useful guidance to groups of authors, and to improve their own editorial abilities and knowledge.
