Springer, the world-renown publisher of more than 2,900 journals and 200,000 books, has developed several author & editor e-tutorials that provide advice and learning materials to help prospective authors and reviewers "write, submit, and publish your manuscript; become a peer reviewer; and learn about open access."

The American Chemical Society (ACS) produced this video series to help authors and reviewers understand the manuscript submission process; it includes interviews with authors and editors of ACS journals who provide insights and answers from their own perspectives and their journals' perspectives.
