The webinar will be held in four IFLA regions with local times to enable the participation in these webinars. Webinar participants will have ample opportunities in conversations with the IFLA Journal Editor, learn more from Editorial Committee members on reviewing process, and listen to accomplished authors who will share their experience through peer-review process for publications.
