Title: Getting it right [Editorial]

Author: Block, William M.;

Date: 2007

Source: Journal of Wildlife Management. 71: 1023-1024.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Manuscripts contain a vast amount of information. Some of this information summarizes the state-of-knowledge and sets the stage for the paper. Other information presents data and summarizes analysis. Lastly, results are interpreted in the form of a discussion and management implications. Although a number of checks in the review and editorial processes catch errors before publication, the reality is that mistakes happen and make it to print. By mistakes, we do not necessarily mean publications that you disagree with for one reason or another (e.g., topic, analysis, conclusions). What we do mean are annoying problems that detract from the main point of the paper. They happen for a number of reasons; they can be intentional or sloppy oversights. Most are fairly minor in nature, but others can affect the credibility of the paper, the credibility of the authors, and, if prevalent, the credibility of the Journal.

Keywords: manuscripts, information, editorial processes
