The Publishing Experience
In lieu of all the information presented to you about submitting to the Made in Millersville Journal, you may be wondering what the publishing experience actually is. What does it mean?
One misconception with the Made in Millersville Journal is that students send in completed papers for us to publish. What you send to us can actually be either a rough draft or the abstract that you’ve submitted when applying to the Made in Millersville Conference.
What will happen after the submission deadline is you’ll be asked by our Project Manager for Authors, Phoebe, will ask you for a short biography about yourself* and a professional quality photograph to go along with your published article. Once those are submitted, we will then dive into working with you in editing and revising your journal article.
During the editing and revision process, our editorial team will carefully read through your written work and, as well as checking for grammatical and citation errors, make suggestions to guide you in expanding and explaining the summary of your Made in Millersville project. This will occur over approximately over a month leading up to the conference.
Our goal is to work with you to help you fine-tune your writing skills so that your published article can be at its best quality. We also know that the semester can get pretty crazy and hope that our service as editors to you will help make preparing your submission easier for you. Additionally, we’re also open to total communication if you encounter any struggles during the publishing process.
We look forward to getting to know more about you and your project.
